Soil Type Neutral
Scent Scented
Height 35cm (14in)
Spacing Plant the bulbs just below the soil surface, pointy end up with 5-8cm (2-3in) between each bulb.
Care Tips Large, deep pots are ideal as narcissi are large bulbs with an extensive root structure. The bulbs will need a spell in cold to ensure they flower well, with a temperature below 10 degrees. Keep the compost moist but not dripping wet the whole time. Use a decorative nest of twigs as support as they grow to keep them from flopping. Use a loam based compost, lightened with some grit for planting.
Flowering 4-6 weeks from planting.

Just five bulbs planted a couple of months ago are making a lovely display in my living room at the moment. Taller and more impressive than I was expecting.
