Soft, curvy, pretty and delicately scented - this traditional narcissi is now all the rage - the instagram florist's favourite. Surprisingly for something that looks so delicate, it also naturalises brilliantly in grass and its leaves are fine enough not to look messy as they die back. Great cut flower too. More

Surprisingly for something that looks so delicate, it also naturalises brilliantly in grass and its leaves are fine enough not to look messy as they die back. Great cut flower too.

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.
