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.

  • Narcissi Golden Bells Taylors Bulbs

    It is easy to see why this Narcissus is commly called ‘Hoop Petticoat Daffodil’. The enlarged, golden trumpets of this vigorously growing variety create a distinctive display with excellent weather resistance. For a dramatic spring spectacle, grow them in bold drifts naturalised in grass, where their delicate blooms will be a harbinger of spring for years to come. Narcissus flowers are also perfect for cutting for a pretty springtime arrangement indoors.

    Daffodils and Narcissus bulbs are easy to establish in any moist, well drained soil. Plant the bulbs in full sun or semi –shade at a depth of approximately 10cm and at a distance of 10cm apart. Narcissus and Daffodils look particularly eye-catching when grown as difts in borders or informal areas of grass. For a natural effect, cast the bulbs across the area and plant them where they land. For an attractive indoor display, plant them in a dark position at a maximum temperature of 10C. Water sparingly when necessary to keep the compost moist. When the growing shoots reach a height of 10cm move the containers to a cool bright position indoors.

  • Narcissi Grand Soleil D’Or Taylors Bulbs

    The Narcissus ‘Grand Soleil d’Or’ produces wonderfully scented gold and orange flowers, perfect for forcing in pots indoors where they will add colour and perfume even in the bleak mid-winter.

    You can also grow this lovely small-flowered daffodil outside in a sheltered spot. Each stem produces a generous number of richly scented bicolour blooms that are perfect for cutting.

    When planting, wear gloves, planting 10-15cm deep and 10cm apart in autumn. After flowering feed with a balanced fertiliser and deadhead the flowers. Do not be tempted to cut back or tidy the foliage after flowering as this will interfere with the bulbs ability to store energy for the following years flowers.

    If forcing your daffodils inside, plant them close together in bowls filled with bulb fibre. Make sure the growing tips are protruding just above the top of the compost. Put them in a cold, dark place which will encourage the flowering stems and roots to develop before the leaves. Keep the bulb fibre moist and leave them in a dark place for 8 weeks or until the new shoots are about 4-5cm tall. Once they have reached this height, bring them into a light room away from bright sunlight. They leaves will gradually turn green and you can slowly increase the light levels as they do. The flowers will soon follow.

  • Narcissi Paperwhite Ziva Taylors Bulbs

    The traditional Narcissi ‘Paperwhite Ziva’ is said to have the strongest scent of all Narcissi. It can be planted out in sheltered gardens but is more often planted up into bowls and ‘forcing’ to grown early as an indoor plant. The scent is unforgettable and will fill your home for weeks on end!

    When planting use gloves and plant your bulbs 10-15cm deep and 10cm apart in autumn. Once they have flowered feed with a balanced fertiliser and then deadhead the flowers. Do not remove or cut back any foliage after flowering as this will interfere with the bulbs ability to store energy for the following year’s flowers.

    If you wish to force growth, plant them close together in bowls filled with bulb fibre. Make sure the growing tips are protruding just above the top of the compost. Put them in a cold, dark place that will encourage the flowering stems and roots to develop before the leaves. Keep the bulb fibre moist and leave them in the dark for 8 weeks or until the new shoots are about 4-5cm tall. Once they have reached this height bring them into a dark room away from bright sunlight. The leaves will gradually turn green and you can slowly increase the light levels as they do. The flowers will soon follow.

    If you prefer to keep your ‘Paperwhites’ compact, a little alcohol is said to reduce their height by up to 40%. Fill a tray with pebbles and water, making sure that the bottom of the pot is not standing in the water. When the shoots are approx. 5cm high,, top out the water and refill with a mix of 9 parts water and 1 part hard liquor like gin or vodka. This will help compact the growth.
