Part of the new generation of large cup daffodils, ‘Sunlover’ is big, bright and beautiful. The large perianth is lemon yellow with hints of green, but this beauty is almost eclipsed by the wide, ruffled, deep orange cup. The iridescent flowers open early to mid season.

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.
