More Details

I have this incredibly elegant, highly scented narcissus planted between my overwintering dahlias to give me buckets of long-lasting narcissi to cut for spring. Also good in grass.

Common Name Daffodil
Border Position Front
Bulb Size 15/17
Soil Type Acid, Alkaline, Chalky, Clay, Fertile, Neutral, Sandy
Scent Scented
Site Full Sun, Part Shade
Height 30cm (12in)
Spacing Plant pointy end up, 10-15cm (4-6in) inches deep with three to four inches between each bulb.
Care Tips Plant anytime from August - November. They are very tolerant bulbs.
Flowering 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.

They didn't last as well as the tulips. I think I should have been moor imaginative with them.
