    Clusters of up three deep golden-yellow flowers with slightly reflexed petals and deep yellow cups appear in March and April above the narrow, strap-shaped leaves. One of the most popular forms, this delightful dwarf narcissus makes a fabulous early spring display for a sunny window-box. Blue grape hyacinths and slow-growing variegated ivies help to extend the season of interest.

  • Garden care: Wearing gloves plant bulbs 10-15cm (4-6in) deep from late summer to early autumn. After flowering feed with a balanced fertiliser, dead-head and allow the leaves to die back naturally.

    Comments about Crocus Narcissus'Tête-à-tête':

    I have grown these for years as they flower early and go on for weeks on end. Plus they come back the next year.

    • Q:

      This is my favourite dwarf daffodil! As I have a small garden, I am considering whether to plant all garden bulbs inside pond planters sunk into the earth, thinking that after flowering, I could simply remove the baskets and replant the empty spaces. - If I were to try this, would I need to keep the resting bulbs and their soil watered until next season, or not? (I have various narcissi, muscari, tulips, bluebells and snowdrops). Thank you very much for your advice.

        A:

        Hello,

        If you are keeping the bulbs planted in the pond planters, then yes you should water them occasionally during the summer, but if you are waiting for them to die back, lifting and storing them in a cool dark spot in the shed, then you do not need to. It is worth keeping in mind however, that of the bulbs you have mentioned the tulips tend not to do very well in subsequent years, so are better replaced each year.

    Bulb blindness

    Bulbs produce lovely foliage but no flowers. Either no buds at all appear or those that do are dry and virtually empty of petals. Daffodils (Narcissi) are usually the worst affects, especially multi-headed or double forms.

    Plant spring bulbs

    Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it
