tazetta daffodil bulbs
- Position: full sun or partial shade
- Soil: well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: April
- Flower colour: pale yellow
- Other features: excellent as cut-flowers; contact with the sap may cause skin irritation
- Hardiness: hardy
- Bulb size: 12+
Clusters of up to five pale yellow flowers, which fade to a delicious cream as they mature, appear on each stem in mid-spring. They will quickly spread to form good-sized clumps, so they are ideal for planting beneath deciduous trees or shrubs, where they will put on a wonderful, early show.
- Garden care:Wearing gloves plant bulbs 10-15cm deep and 10cm apart in autumn. After flowering feed with a balanced fertiliser, dead-head the flowers, but do not be tempted to cut back or tidy the foliage after flowering as this will interfere with the bulbs ability to store energy for the following year's flowers.

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.Read full article
