Buy Narcissus 'Jetfire' cyclamineus daffodil bulbs: Great for naturalising in bold drifts

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained soil (for container-grown bulbs use two parts John Innes No2 compost to one part sharp grit)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March and April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb Size: 10/12

    The dramatically swept back golden yellow petals surround a bright orange trumpet, giving this sturdy daffodil a windswept look. They appear in early spring and are ideal for naturalising in bold drifts where they will carpet the ground with their golden flowers. Also suitable for pots if space is limited, so their bright and cheerful colour can be enjoyed close at hand.

  • Garden care: Plant 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.

  • Harmful if eaten/skin irritant

Charming, sunny little flowers which put on a brave display in nasty weather. I love the form with curved back petals. I have been a fan for some years.

I've had these before, but bought a load more for my new garden. I specifically wanted to plant an area that only got half a days sun and was a bit exposed to strong winds. I thought their small size would give them more of a chance of not getting too tall reaching for more light and then being blown over. Happy to say the plan worked, I have several clumps, they are still up right and have given a good earlier displace for 2 weeks during which we had some very strong winds.

These were a lovely pop of colour in the spring and they grew well in the various places I put them. However, the leaves took ages to die back and left the garden and tubs looking unkept for a long time. Perhaps not ideal for a small garden where you can't just look at a different area of the garden. Might be best to plant sparingly, and have something else coming up to hide the dead leaves? As a novice gardener, I haven't worked the timings out yet.

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
