Buy Narcissus cantabricus white hoop petticoat daffodil: This low-growing gem produces its white trumpet-like flowers

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: December to February
  • Hardiness: frost hardy
  • Bulb size: 5/7

    This low-growing gem produces its white trumpet-like flowers during the winter, so it's ideal for adding a splash of colour to a sheltered rockery or alpine bed at a time when little else is in bloom. They can also be potted up and grown on before being brought inside for a short period when they start to flower.

  • Garden care: Wearing gloves plant bulbs 5-10cm deep and 5-10 cm apart in a sheltered garden. Alternatively, pot them up and keep in an alpine house or coldframe throughout the year. 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.

  • Harmful if eaten/skin irritant
