    Add a bit of spring sunshine to your windowsill with this cute hedgehog planter and daffodil set. It's also a great way to encourage younger green fingered gardeners, as you can plant the bulbs, care for them and then watch them grow!

    The kit contains one ceramic hedgehog planter, three miniature daffodil bulbs (Narcissus 'Rip Van Winkle'), potting compost, and clear instructions on how to put them all together to create a beautiful display for your home.

    Indoor growing intructions: Plant from August onwards, by emptying two thirds of the compost into the planter. Then place the bulbs on top (pointy side uppermost) and cover them with the remaining compost, firming it down gently. Water sparingly so the compost is just moist, but be careful not to overwater. Place the planter in a bright position and try to maintain temperatures around 18-20C. Once in flower, move the planter to a cool, bright room to help prolong the display. Turn the hedgehog occasionally, and keep the compost moist but not waterlogged at all times. When the flowers have finished blooming, the bulbs can be planted outside in the garden.
