    Highly fragrant, early flowering narcissus that can be grown outside in a sheltered bed or 'forced' for an early display indoors. Clusters of soft creamy white double flowers, with a deeper buttery yellow centre create a mass of beautiful multi-headed blooms (up to 20 per stem). The intoxicating scent which is said be similar to a gardenia needs to be appreciated so plant in containers near a door, a seating area or potted up for your living room. Once they have finished flowering indoors you can move them into the garden to die back naturally. Don't forget these gorgeous blooms are wonderful as cut flowers too.

  • 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.

  • To force your daffodils: Plant them close together in bowls filled with bulb fibre. Make sure the growing tips are protruding just above the top of the compost. Put them in a cold, dark place, which will encourage the flowering stems and roots to develop before the leaves. Keep the bulb fibre just moist and leave them in the dark for 8 weeks - or until the new shoots are about 4-5cm tall. Once they have reached this height, bring them into a dark room away from bright sunlight. The leaves will gradually turn green and you can slowly increase the light levels as they do. The flowers will soon follow.

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.

Plan ahead with bulbs

One of the great things about gardening is being able to look into the future with enthusiasm, and part of that is planting now for next spring. A gardener knows, when handling papery brown bulbs, that these insignificant little things will produce early
