Bulb Size 6/8
Soil Type Acid, Alkaline, Chalky, Clay, Fertile, Neutral, Sandy
Scent Scented

Care Tips Plant anytime from August - November. They are very tolerant bulbs.
Flowering March - April
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.

Beautiful little wild daffodils which brightened one of the borders in my garden in early spring. They weren't blown over by the winter winds and were much more natural than the tete a tete variety. I shall be ordering more.

The bulbs arrived in good condition and grew well. There was an issue over some that were supposedly forced for Christmas flowering and simply did not grow , but I was given a refund in late January when I called to explain

Well I'm chuffed with mine. Bought at the last minute in the sale, all seem to be flowering mid March in a soggy alluvial clay soil lawn that I'm trying to improve with grass cuttings and spiked shoes. Plus the first one out was occupied by a honey bee. I just guessed the depth. I'll be looking for more bargains this year.

Pathetic pseudonarcissus

Reviewed 20th October 2014 by Jenny Mulligan

Loving the idea of having creeping spread of pseudonarcissus I have bought and planted these year on year for the last few years ... and have been really disappointed as very few come up and most of those that do are blind. I keep hoping that they will mature beneath my soil and surprise me one early Spring day. Shall I give them another chance I am asking myself?

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you for comments. The pseudonarcissus can take a year or two to settle, and once established flowering will increase year on year. It's normal for only a few to appear and not flower completely. Make sure that the leaves that come up and allowed to die back to feed the bulb for the following year, as you would do with any other bulb. We hope for a gorgeous display in the coming year!"
