Double Daffodil `Apotheose` is a mid flowering cultivar. The whorls of bright yellow petals are interspersed with a soft orange split corona.
No spring garden is complete without Daffodils and Double Daffodils are twice as nice with double trumpets, double petals or both. Often vibrant in colour, these Daffodils have all the trimmings. Take advantage of the large variety available to create a symphony of colours and textures in your garden. Suitable for garden and container plantings. Plant as many as space permits!
Daffodils like plenty of sun and a well drained soil.
It is a good idea to prepare your soil before planting by digging through some well rotted manure or compost a few weeks prior to planting. This will improve drainage and add nutrients to the soil, giving your Double Daffodils a good start.
Plant Double 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. Space 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 of your Double Daffodils to remain until it has yellowed. This fading foliage gathers energy and nutrients at this time for next years blooms. Keep relatively moist during this time and add a little general purpose fertiliser. Daffodils like Potash and slow release brands which are low in nitrogen (this encourages more flowers
