Daffodil `Erlicheer` has soft cream to ivory petals. This variety is always popular, for its strong fragrance, reliable performance and early start to the season.
Also known as Jonquils or Jonquil type Daffodils, Scented Daffodil flowers `cluster` together along the straight stems forming an impressive display. These blooms have a strong, sweet fragrance that carries beautifully throughout the garden.
Scented Daffodils are easy, they like plenty of sun and a well drained soil. Plant as many as space permits!
It is a good idea to prepare your soil by digging through some well rotted manure a few weeks prior to planting. This will improve drainage and add nutrients to the soil, giving your Scented Daffodils a good start.
Plant Scented 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.
Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem. Allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed. The Daffodil foliage gathers energy and nutrients at this time for next year's blooms. Keep 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).
