Care Tips Plant anytime from August-November. Plant pointy end up, 10-15cm deep with 8-10cm between each bulb in borders (less in containers). After flowering deadhead but allow leaves to die back naturally to give the bulbs strength for the following year.
Flowering April - May
Vase Life Narcissi make great cut flowers lasting up to a week in the vase. I love them jumbled up in large jugs on the table. Be careful mixing with other flower types as their stems give off a compound that is toxic to other flowers and soak their stems in warm water before displaying to stop the 'goo' from running out.

I bought 3 varieties of narcissus and put them in two pots. I had a continuous display from about March through to June. I was very pleased and cannot fault the service of Sarah Raven.

Service always excellent. The bulbs did not perform as well as expected but that was probably where I planted them. Good bulb size as always.
