'Cheerfulness' Daffodil Bulbs

From our wide range of quality bulbs comes the softly-spoken and bright daffodil, 'Cheerfulness'.

These multiple-headed daffodils bloom in clusters of bright, creamy white, with delicately edged petals and a puff of yellow in the centre, contrasting stunningly against the fine, slender line of their strap-shaped leaves.

In fact, the flower seems strangely reminiscent of another Easter-time treat! Eggs, anyone?

These are available to be bought alone, or in our 'Exotic Daffodils Mix' for an exciting and unusual springtime display!

These are late flowerers for daffodils (appearing in April through to May) and such a gentle example as this is perfect to lead the garden from the vigour of Spring into the splendour of Summer! Narcissus 'Cheerfulness' has earned the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

This is an English-grown variety. Reaching around 35cm (14”) in height, the light and delicate appearance of these daffodils makes them perfect for placement mid-border to break up harsher lines or dark colours. This said, their versatility and hardiness also lends to use in all kinds of locations from city courtyards, to patio containers all the way to traditional wildflower meadows. See the full range of narcissus and daffodil bulbs we have available for sale.

  • RHS Award of Garden Merit

The flowers of 'Cheerfulness' have a musky, sweet fragrance which will allow any household to appreciate its name. Standing on tall, straight stems, and as hardy as any other daffodil despite their appearance, 'Cheerfulness' makes for a perfect bouquet cut straight from the garden!

These bulbs are suitable for almost all types of soil and should be planted any time during autumn (from August to November) at around 10-15cm (4-6") deep, spaced around 10cm (4") apart, and preferably in full sun (no more than half shade).

They are very hardy and shouldn't need any further protection, but if planted shallower applying mulch may help protect against harsher winter frosts. These daffodils prefer moist yet well-drained soil, and overwatering should be avoided lest the bulbs become rotten and fail. Propagation is achieved by separating offsets and replanting as the leaves are fading in early summer.

On an on-going basis, the plants should be dead-headed to maintain a tidy appearance; however the plants should not be cut back further until the foliage begins to fade. If bloom performance was poor, low nitrogen, high potassium fertilizer can be supplied following flowering in order to improve the following years' showings.

These flowers are susceptible to only a few pests and diseases, but look out for: slugs; narcissus bulb fly; narcissus eelworm; bulb scale mite and basal rot.
