Soft yellow, reflexed petals with a strong, golden cup. This variety always sells fast so get in quick! Flowers mid season, each stretching to just under 7cm. The flowers open on a stem and more than one stem can crow from each bulb.

Daffodil ‘Spring Sunshine’ is also known as ‘Eaton Song’. It holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit for reliability and vigour.

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 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.

IN POTS:
This is our recommendation for the best display, keeping in mind bulbs look best when planted nice and close together.

14cm/6” = 10 bulbs
20cm/8” = 20 bulbs
25cm/10” = 30 bulbs
