Daffodil ‘Dolly Mollinger’ has pretty, white petals. The base of the corona is orange and shaped in a star pattern, fading to white at the margins. Beautiful early to mid season flowers.

Butterfly Daffodils are a spring essential. Their full, elaborate form has a split corona /trumpet that develops into a handsome ruffle. They are also known as Split Corona or Split Cup Daffodils but we like the more romantic term, Butterfly Daffodils, and there is no denying they look fabulous fluttering in the spring breeze.

Butterfly 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 10cm or apart. You can allow more space if you are leaving the bulbs in to naturalise. Planting them closer will give 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 as this is when the bulbs are 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.
Daffodil ‘Dolly Mollinger’ is Division 11b, Split-Cupped Papillon.

IN POTS:
This is our recommendation for the best display, keeping in mind bulbs look best when planted nice and close together.

14cm/6” = 3 bulbs
20cm/8” = 6 bulbs
25cm/10” = 10 bulbs
