British Gamble is a trumpet daffodil producing a large white perianth with attractive rose trumpet. A quite distinctive variety,British Gamble will provide you with a fantastic flower shape and colour combination.
Trumpet daffodils provide a fantastic show in the garden and are also often used for cut flower. Ideal for growing in borders around the garden but they are also well suited for growing in containers.
Before planting your bulbs cultivate soils to a depth of 20 to 30cms and plant bulbs 15cms deep and 10-15cms apart. In heavier soils add grit and or humus matter to help with drainage. Daffodils can be left to naturalise and as such can be left undisturbed for many years. They must however be fed during the flowering and leaf stage with something like bone meal, well rotted compost or similar. Do not cut off or tie up the leaves as this will not allow the bulbs to take in nutrients for the following years growth.
Narcissi/daffodils are divided into many divisions and those that produce flowers with a large trumpet and elegant petals are grouped into division 1. They are perhaps the ones we think of first when thinking of daffodils.
Protect early growth in the spring from slugs and snails and remove dead heads after flowering (if not using as a cut flower) to get the best from them.
Tip: Keep daffodils well fed during the growing season and remember to lift and divide after a number of years. Daffodils work well when grown with a selection form the vast assortment of Triumph tulips available.
Ideal foods are well rotted manures, tomato feed and bone meal.
