Buy Narcissus 'Rijnveld's Early Sensation' trumpet daffodil bulbs: This is the earliest trumpet daffodil

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: December to February
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 12/14

    In milder winters, or in particularly sheltered gardens, this trumpet daffodil can be in bloom in late December or early January, so if you want an early start to the season, then this is by far the best one to choose. It flowers a good few weeks earlier than many of the other big trumpet types, often producing blooms before the foliage has had a chance to reach its full height. This makes it ideal for extending the season - as well as lifting the spirits in the depths of winter.

  • Garden care: Wearing gloves plant bulbs 10-15cm (4-6in) deep and a similar distance apart from late summer to mid autumn. After flowering feed with a balanced fertiliser, dead-head and allow the leaves to die back naturally.

Early sunshiny blooms

I have never grown this narcissus before but was attracted to the idea of giving them a try, in anticipation of adding some early colour after winter, for containers on my south facing balcony. These bulbs arrived quickly, and in perfect condition, and I have not been disappointed. It is now early February in Brighton, and these bulbs are breaking out into bright, beautiful, sunshiny blooms which look absolutely beautiful. I will definitely be buying these from Crocus again, and I like them so much, that next time, I will be doubling my order!

Not so early this year

I grew these in a pot, hoping for some early colour. However, possibly due to the long cold winter, they didn't flower till the end of March. Flowers are about 20 inches tall and just going over now, 20 April. A bonus was that I was able to use some as an entry to my gardening club show at the end of March. Traditional daffodil shape and nice colour. Not early though!

I bought this daffodil because it was advertised as very early. This year it appeared above ground and flowered later than mid season varieties. However the flowers look like those on the web site so hopefully they are Rijnvelds and the late flowering was due to it being their first year. Crocus technical staff seem to know their subject and answer the question asked, which is unfortunately rare these days.

Plant in lawn or garden where visible from a window to see bright gold flowers in mid winter. I have grown these for more than 30 years in Birmingham UK. Earliest flower opened 24th December 2003.

Early lang lasting colour

We live at 600ft altitude in North Wales, yet the first of these daffodils was in flower in our garden on Christmas day. Best of all they remain in flower much longer that most dafs so you will have a great display for several weeks.

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
