Topolino Narcissi Bulbs

A tried-and-tested favourite, dwarf daffodil, Topolino will bring an early hint of spring and sunshine to any garden, blooming as early as February and right through March. If you are looking for narcissi that flower later then take a look at the rest of our range of daffodils.

This is an heirloom trumpet variety of Narcissus, with lemon-yellow coronas (trumpets) with a ruffled edge. They are surrounded by pointed, creamy-white perianth segments (petals). Despite only reaching 20cm in height, it's noted for its sturdiness and being able to shake off the bad weather that often strikes around its flowering time. If your garden is exposed, windy or is in a cold region, this is the daffodil for you. It's also perfect for beginners.

How to use dwarf daffodils

It's important to remember that when you plant your bulbs in autumn, the sun will be shining differently early the next year. Although there will be less sunlight reaching the ground generally in late winter and early spring, since the sun is at a lower angle in the sky one area will receive a lot more - under deciduous trees. Once trees come into full leaf in late April/May they cast shade.

However, in early spring, the leafmould-rich soil under trees is open to much more light. Dwarf daffodils like are ideal for naturalising in places like this around trees, as once established, they will offset and spread quite happily. You can just let them get on with it! As soil under trees tends to be quite dry, there is less chance of the bulbs becoming waterlogged and rotting.

Of course, dwarf scented daffodils also have their place in containers where there's a lot of foot traffic, so you can appreciate their lovely sweet fragrance. If you're using them this way, space them closer together. As long as your pot has drainage, any general-purpose compost will do fine. Just don't overwater them. When they've finished flowering, you can plant them into the garden and enjoy Topolino for years to come.
