Buy Narcissus 'Jack Snipe' cyclamineus daffodil bulbs: Pretty bi-coloured flowers

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March and April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 10/12

    A miniature trumpet daffodil with petals that open up and curl backwards, making the flower look a little like it has been grown in a wind tunnel. The other feature of this small daff is the bi-coloured flowers - white outer petals with a yellow central cup. Good for adding early spring colour to a mixed border, or pot them up and move them to a prominent position on the patio when they start to flower.

  • 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.

Notes on Narcissus 'Jack Snipe'

"A touch of moonlight with pale-lemon to cream outer petals curving back from a crepe-paper trumpet with a pinked edge. Takes flight easily."

Hello, These should be watered well after planting and then placed on the patio outside. Every so often check if they need another water - the aim is to keep them just moist but never waterlogged.

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.
