'Little Witch' has considerably reflexed yellow petals with a deeper yellow corona. The petals are separated and look just like they have been blown back by a strong wind (or taken for a ride on a broomstick!). The corona is ribbed and juts straight out. This is a robust Cyclamineus Daffodil with long lasting flowers.
Cyclamineus Daffodil 'Little Witch' blooms open early to mid season, on 15-30cm stems. They are easy and rewarding to grow.
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 Miniature Daffodils a good start.
Plant Miniature 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 Miniature Daffodils 5-15cm apart, the longer distance 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 Miniature 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).
