This beautiful Daffodil has the well known trumpet style shape but the big advantage this one has over some of the others is that it performs well in warmer areas.
So for those customers in Temperate, Mediterranean and SubTropical. This is the daffodil that will put on a great show.
Remember to plant Daffodil bulbs three times as deep as the bulb is high, with the pointy end up. The depth will protect them from heat, as well as producing a nice strong stem. We usually space our Daffodils about 10-20cm apart, as they will multiply over time. Imagine that.. they keep having babies!
Once the flowering has finished, you can remove the flower stem, but its super important to allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed, if you want them to flower next year. You see, the Daffodil foliage gathers energy and nutrients at this time for next year’s blooms.
Keep the plants relatively moist during this time, and add a little general purpose fertiliser. Daffodils do like Potash and slow release fertiliser brands, which are low in nitrogen (this means more flowers and less foliage) but they are not heavy feeders. You can also use complete liquid fertilisers every 2 weeks from when it starts flowering to when it totally dies back.
Don't skimp on numbers with this one, as it will look very sparse. This is why we are selling them in bulk, at such great prices, so that you will have an amazing display come Spring! So go for broke!
Cool to Sub-Tropical
Full Sun to Light Shade
Growing Conditions Detailed
Botanical grouping: Narcissus
Plant/bulb type: True bulbs
Planting time: Late Summer to Autumn
Height: 30-45cm tall.
Depth & spacing: 12-15cm apart. 15cm deep
Full sun to half shade.
Well drained. Generally not fussy.
Start watering when growth appears and keep soil slightly moist, until foliage dies off after flowering. It is ideal to keep bulbs relatively dry whilst dormant.
Top dress with a complete fertiliser each Autumn. Eg: Blood & Bone. For better performance, top dress annually again after flowering.
From late Winter, until mid Spring (depending on the variety).
After flowering care
The bulbs can either be dug and stored, or left to naturalise in the ground. The bulbs will need lifting and dividing (because they multiply & overcrowd themselves) every 3-5 years. Planting slightly deeper and further apart, will delay the need to lift.
Subtropical to cool.
