What a beauty. The perfumed, lemon yellow petals overlap just slightly and form the most perfect back drop for the open, rippling, orange cup. Up to five flowers open in each stem early to mid season.
Also known as Jonquils or Jonquil type daffodils, Scented Daffodil flowers `cluster` together on branched stems forming an impressive display. These blooms have a strong, sweet fragrance that carries beautifully throughout the garden. A top choice for beginners and warmer climates, Scented Daffodils are virtually indestructible, simply plant and enjoy.
Scented Daffodils are easy and they like the simple things in life; plenty of sun and a well drained soil.
Plant Daffodil bulbs three times as deep as the bulb is high, with the pointy end up. The depth will protect them from heat and soil erosion, as well as providing strength for the stem. Space your Daffodils 10-20cm apart, more if you are leaving the bulbs in to naturalise, closer for a more dramatic display. We like to plant ours three to a hole to create instant effects.
Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem (this stops the plant focusing on seed production and will increase your bulb). Allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed. This is the time when the Daffodil foliage is gathering energy and nutrients for next year’s blooms. Keep the plants relatively moist during this time, and add a little general purpose fertiliser. Daffodils like Potash and slow release fertiliser brands which are low in nitrogen (this means more flowers and less foliage), and you won’t need much as they are not heavy feeders.
