The wide, orange corona lays almost flat over the antique white perianth. A stunning, big bloom with a loosely frilled corona. A great garden bulb with mid season flowers.

Frivolous flamboyance! Butterfly Daffodils have elaborate flowers, they are made so the corona, cup or trumpet is split into natural lobes to form a ruffle. This ruffle makes the flower appear double. They are also known as Split Corona or Split Cup Daffodil, but we like the more romantic term, Butterfly Daffodils. Whatever you choose to call them, they look fabulous fluttering in the spring breeze.

You can take advantage of the large variety of Daffodils available to create a symphony of colours and textures in your garden or containers. Our Tip: by choosing early mid and late flowering varieties you can extend your show and enjoy daffodils from June to October.

Double 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. This depth will help protect them from heat and soil erosion, as well as providing strength for the stem.

Space your Daffodils 5-10cm or apart. Planting them closer will give a more dramatic display. We like to plant ours three to a hole as this creates instant effects. When you use this method in garden beds, with smaller clumps more often, you get the joy of repetition. Another benefit is that when the foliage dies back it is more inconspicuous.

Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem, or simply snap the finished flower off. This has two advantages; the first is this stops the plant focusing on seed production, so you can increase your bulbs, second it looks better!

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 appreciate Potash and slow release fertiliser brands which are low in nitrogen (so you get more flowers and less foliage). Don’t be too heavy handed, you won’t need much as they are not heavy feeders.
