Daffodil and narcissus bulbs are easy to establish in any moist, well drained soil. Plant the bulbs in full sun or semi-shade at a depth of approximately 10cm (4") and at a distance of 10cm (4") apart. Narcissus and Daffodils look particularly eye-catching when grown as drifts in borders or informal areas of grass. For a really natural effect, cast the bulbs across the area and plant them where they land.

For an attractive indoor display, plant daffodils and narcissus in containers of bulb fibre and position them cool garage or other well ventilated, dark position at a maximum temperature of 10°C (50°F). Water sparingly when necessary to keep the compost moist. When the growing shoots reach a height of 10cm (4") move the containers to a cool bright position indoors (approximately 16°C or 60°F).

After flowering, allow the foliage to die back naturally before removing it in June or July. This will help to feed the bulb for the following year. When growing daffodils and narcissus that are naturalised in grass, avoid mowing the area until their foliage has died back. Caution: Narcissus bulbs are harmful if eaten. The sap may irritate the skin and eyes.

Reviews
  1. Excellent

    By M Rehman 15-05-2013

    Long-lasting incredibly-fragrant flowers. All bulbs flowered heavily in the first year, grown in clay. Totally recommend it.

  2. Delicate explosion of cream frills

    By Raven Wenner 07-05-2011

    This is far better than its description -- "Rose of May" is good en masse if you want an "all white " planting, --or accenting other flowers of any colour. It is hardy and easy to grow -- it is both frilly and elegant, and so be at ease in both formal and informal gardens.
