Buy Narcissus 'Papillon Blanc' - Organic bulbs Natural - organic bulbs: Grown 100% orgainically

In keeping with our concern for the plight of the bees, this bulb forms part of our organic bulb range. It has been sustainably grown without the use of pesticides (including neonicitinoides), and it comes in a brown paper bag with an informative colour label.

  • 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: hardy
  • Bulb Size: 12/14

    Large white outer petals (or perianth segments), which look a little like the wings of a butterfly, surround the gently ruffled, green-eyed yellow cup. Together they form a beautiful flower that looks wonderful in borders or seasonal bedding schemes - and as they last well after being cut, they are also excellent for the vase.

  • 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
