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 was delighted with all the bulbs I purchased from you in the Autumn last year. The display was excellent. The bulbs were well labelled, and in a dry condition to plant and also the bulbs were quite large and easy to plant in our garden. Some of them I put in a large square container and I layered them as suggested. I particularly like the Double Yellow Cheerfulness bulbs. Unfortunately, I did not have any photos taken.

They bloomed right to the end of April in front of a beech hedge and looked wonderful. Many blooms per stem.

First time growing this narcissus. At first I was a little disappointed as the flowers are quite small but with many stems from each bulb, several flower heads per stem, the most beautiful scent and a bold bright colour to the flowers, I now really like them.
