Dwarf Tete a Tete Narcissus Bulbs
Yellow Dwarf Rockery Narcissi
Bring the sunshine into your garden with the Tete a Tete daffodil. Also known as the Narcissus Tete a Tete, our Tete a Tete daffodil bulbs are the most popular selling from our narcissi dwarf daffodil collection.
Standing at only approximately 6 inches high and with each stem having up to 3 blooms, the Tete a Tete daffodil brings a fantastic burst of golden yellow star-shaped flowers and delicate scent in early spring.
Its small size and reflexed petals of 5-6cm make it highly versatile and ideal for planting in a range of situations including sunny window boxes, indoor pots, at the front of a border, woodland gardens and in between shrubs.
Its delicate name detracts from its hardy nature, withstanding temperatures down to -15.
How to grow
- When: plant in late summer to early autumn
- Position: full sun to partial shade
- Soil: able to tolerate most soils but best when planted in moderately fertile and well drained soil. Keep ground constantly wet whilst growing. Consider a fertiliser starter.
- Depth: one and a half to two times the bulbs depth, 12-20cm
- Gardener's tip: Allow the leaves the die off naturally before dead-heading. Propagate by removing offsets as the leaves begin to fade. A half strength high-potash fertilizer starter is recommended, as is bringing the plants inside once the bulbs begin to open to encourage early flowering. Once the foliage has died off they can be left undisturbed for years.
Awarded the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Award of Garden Merit (AGM), Tete a Tete, literally meaning 'head to head' in French, is an apt name for a daffodil bred for its abundance of flowers - they really do look like they're conversing face to face with each other! It is extremely popular and can be found in many of the RHS's gardens across the UK. See the full variety of daffodil and narcissus bulbs we have available for sale.
