Our choice of cup, trumpet and scented (jonquil) daffodils.
A selection of traditional, old favourite daffodils, multi-headed Jonquil types as well as a smattering of unusual varieties. We choose this mix to be pretty, fragrant and economical.
Daffodils are the essence of spring. If you haven't planted a daffodil what are you waiting for? The cheerful, sunny blooms are perfect impetus to put a smile on your dial. Their feel good colour is big on rewards with minimal effort and these tried and tested varieties are guaranteed to perform and perfect for mass plantings.
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.
