Cultivation instructions

Tazetta narcissi are highly fragrant and most varieties can be used to grow indoors. Plant them in pots, containers and rockeries as well as borders in the garden. Suitable to be planted in many varied soil types as long as they are free draining, in heavier soils add grit or well rotted organic matter to help with drainage. In lighter soils such as sand add humus matter which will help to retain nutrients and water. Cultivate the soils to a depth of 15-20cms and plant bulbs 10cms deep and 10cms apart. When planting in containers the distance apart can be reduced to 5cms if required. Protect the early growth in the spring from slugs and snails and remove dead heads after flowering to get the best from them. Remember to feed the bulbs during the leaf and flower stage with bone meal, tomato feed or similar.

A highly scented group of varieties which will work really well when planted with fragrant Hyacinths.

This is a late season daffodil that will naturalise very well in the garden and can be left undisturbed for many years.

Care Tips:

When growing indoors plant bulbs using as indoor compost and plant with the top of the bulb about 3-5cm below the soil level.

Work well in planting schemes with other dwarf bulbs such as anemones, dwarf iris, muscari’s and dwarf tulips for instance.

Ideal foods are well rotted manures, tomato feed and bone meal.

Tip: 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.
