    In milder winters, or in particularly sheltered gardens, this trumpet daffodil can be in bloom in late December or early January, so if you want an early start to the season, then this is by far the best one to choose. It flowers a good few weeks earlier than many of the other big trumpet types, often producing blooms before the foliage has had a chance to reach its full height. This makes it ideal for extending the season - as well as lifting the spirits in the depths of winter.

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

    Comments about Crocus Narcissus'Rijnveld's Early Sensation':

    We live at 600ft altitude in North Wales, yet the first of these daffodils was in flower in our garden on Christmas day. Best of all they remain in flower much longer that most dafs so you will have a great display for several weeks.

    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
