While February may be summer for us, in the northern hemisphere, where this bulb was bred it is late winter, and that is when you can expect to see this flower bloom, and the golden flowers are a portent of a colourful spring soon to arrive.
A lauded Daffodil that has won a host of local and international awards, including the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
Miniature Daffodil ‘February Gold’ has windswept yellow petals with a golden yellow cup, paling slightly at the base.
These petite blooms are small in size but big on impact. They are perfect for small gardens, pots, lawn plantings or the front of beds.
Miniature Daffodils are tough, hardy and simple to grow. These superb daffodils always attract attention and each bulb produces more than one flower. So why not plant as many as space permits!
Plant Miniature Daffodil bulbs three times as deep as the bulb is high, with the pointy end up. This depth will help to 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. In the garden, 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, so it will increase the vigour of 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.
Daffodil ‘February Gold’ is Division 6, Cyclamineus.
