Selected as the best from a picking trial of scented narcissus 15 years ago, we first planted this edging of four varieties the next autumn. Right on the edge of the beds, this has thrived and the stripe gets bolder and broader — giving us more stems to pick — year-on-year. For early spring vases, I’d be lost without it. These all have much longer than usual vase life for narcissus.This collection contains 10 bulbs each of:
- Narcissus 'Pipit'
- Narcissus 'Lieke'
- Narcissus 'Grand Soleil d'Or'
- Narcissus 'Martinette'
Our bulb collections will be supplied with each variety bagged individually. To reduce waste, we no longer collate these into a second larger bag. Your delivery paperwork will list details of the collection you have ordered and the varieties included. Our bags can either be recycled or composted (please check bags for details).
This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.
Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.
After flowering deadhead but allow leaves to die back naturally to give the bulbs strength for the following year.
