Daffodils

Daffodils

The quintessential spring garden flower. The daffodil (Narcissi) is always a sign that spring is most definitely on its way. The bright trumpet shaped flowers are among the earliest of the spring bulbs to bloom. Ranging in colours and size, they will fit perfectly into any garden situation. From bright and sunny yellow to cool and crisp white, they are sure to create huge impact whether planted in pots or in the ground.

Plant daffodils in Autumn for a spectacular Spring display. A top tip is to plant in groups or clusters to create real impact. Smaller varieties such as Narcissi ‘Tete-a-tete’ look stunning planted in pots or tubs and their bright and cheery flowers will lighten up even the shadiest of spots.

Daffodils will be available in stores from August onwards. These should be planted in Autumn so they are able to get their roots down and show off in the Spring.
