Buy Narcissus 'Jenny' cyclamineus daffodil bulbs: A pretty tough customer

  • 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: 12/14

    Elegant flowers appear in March and April with milky-white petals and a lemon trumpet which gradually fades to creamy-white. These daffs have distinctive flowers with long trumpets and windswept petals. It is a dainty cyclamineus hybrid narcissus and is ideal for naturalising in a sunny, well-drained border or for planting in large swathes through grassland. The flowers stand up well to wind and rain - an important consideration when choosing spring bulbs for an exposed site.

  • 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 'Jenny'

"One of the most graceful with pale, creamy petals that arch backwards (with all the grace of Darcey Bussell) to frame a lemon-yellow trumpet crimped on the edges."

Snap 'em up quick!

Sometimes my fondness for plants with associative names - my own in this case or loved ones or special places - seems daft and arbitrary, but Narcissus 'Jenny' is a good choice of plant 'by any other name' too, and you have to be quick as bulbs sell out fast everywhere. I love the delicate but somehow not washed out colour. I planted these tightly in pots for their first season with me and will now be moving them to naturalise in grass under an old apple tree.

I had to get these as I share my name with them! They are also very pale yellow so fit well with my garden colour scheme and the flowers have a lovely elongated shape. They flowered very well and seemed to last for a long time. They also aren't as tall as some types of Narcissus so stood up well against any winds. I am considering get more as I really like the way they look and they grew well in my heavy clay soil.

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
