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

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 13cm (5") 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.
These flowers are susceptible to few pests and diseases, but those to look for in particular are: slugs; narcissus bulb fly; and basal rot.
