    This will make a great gift for a gardener - or for someone who has never gardened before, but has a small patio or balcony and wants a splash of spring colour. These bulbs are so easy to grow, as as the kit comes with everything you will need, there is no fuss or wasteage - just pot them up, keep them watered (ocassionally), and hey presto!

    This kit comes complete with rope handled metal bucket, 7 x mixed double daffodil bulbs, potting compost and clear instructions on how to put them all together to create a beautiful display.

  • Growing instructions: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 18-20°C. Once in flower, move the planter to a cool, bright room to help prolong the display. Turn the basket occasionally as the flowers will grow towards the light, 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.
