Daffodil Pink Champagne is a fabulous new release. The pointed petals are layered. The centre has splashes of pink add decadence to the bloom. Flowers open late season.
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 plenty of sun and a well drained soil. Plant as many as space permits!
It is a good idea to prepare your soil by digging through some well rotted manure a few weeks prior to planting. This will improve drainage and add nutrients to the soil, giving your Double Daffodils a good start.
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 and provide 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 years blooms. Keep relatively moist during this time and add a little general purpose fertiliser. Daffodils like Potash and slow release brands which are low in nitrogen (this encourages more flowers and less foliage).
