A reliable performer that produces an unfailing show year after year. The creamy white petals are crowned with a soft yellow, flared trumpet that fades to cream. The 9cm flowers open mid season.

Daffodil ‘Ice Follies’ is ranked third in worldwide production behind King Alfred and Dutch Master. It holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit so you know it can be relied upon.

Great in the garden and a cinch to grow.
We have trialled and tested these varieties to ensure they are good and hardy, and we are confident of their quality. They can be relied upon to produce masses of unfailing spring colour for many years to come.

Don’t let the name throw you off, Garden Daffodils can also be grown in containers!

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.
