  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: late February to April

    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.

                  Hi

                  I have decided to make a bulb lasagne for the Grandmas this Christmas. I have chosen tete a tete to start, followed by mixed anemone blanda, then a mixed layer of ranuculous and allium neapolitanum cowmanii to finish. I'm hoping that the pots will be in bloom from February to mid summer.

                  Should I stick to the 'largest bulb last' rule, or would you recommend planting in a different order?

                  Many thanks

                    Hello,

                    The rule of thumb is to plant the largest bulbs the deepest, but we also have a video which should give you some extra tips - please click on the following link to go straight to it.

                • 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.

                    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
