Bright indeed with golden petals and a soft orange cup which is rimmed in bright red (the photo was taken on a sunny day so a bit of that is lost in translation, we will work on a better image next year). They have a soft, sweet fragrance. Early to mid season blooms.
No spring garden is complete without Daffodils, and Double Daffodils are twice as nice, with their double trumpets, double petals or both. Often vibrant in colour, these Daffodils have all the trimmings. You can take advantage of the large variety available to create a symphony of colours and textures in your garden.
Double Daffodils are suitable for garden and container plantings.
Double Daffodils are easy, they like the simple things in life; plenty of sun and a well drained soil. It is this sunny disposition that is appealing to gardeners worldwide. We choose the best varieties for our Australian conditions so you are guaranteed success.
Plant Double 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.
Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem. Allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed. The Daffodil foliage gathers energy and nutrients at this time 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). They are not heavy feeders.
