A dwarf narcissi collection which is a must for any garden and ideal for beginners. Also purchased by the keener gardener as they are easy to grow and will come back year after year. Dwarf narcissi are suitable to grow in borders, rockeries and containers and will grow in semi shade to full sun. Plant the bulbs from this dwarf narcissi collection in all free draining soils, in heavier soils add grit or well rotted humus to help drainage.
Collection contents: 50 bulbs, 10 bulbs each of February Gold, Silver Smiles, Tete a Tete, Katie Heath and Minnow providing flowers from February through to April.
Cultivate the soil before planting to a depth of 15-20cms and dig in organic matter (if available) to provide food when they are growing. Bulbs should be planted 10cms deep and 10-15cms apart in groups of 5 or more for the best effect. Narcissi will provide a fantastic shoe of flowers in the spring and will continue to flower for many years. They prefer to be grown in full sun although they can be grown in semi shade. Ensure soils are well drained and do not dry out in the summer. Allow foliage to die back after flowering, you can remove the leaves when they have turned yellow.
Work well when grown with dwarf tulips and large flowering crocus
Water bulbs after planting and apply a mulch of compost in November/December.
Feed regularly during the growing season with high potash and phosphate foods such as bone meal or tomato food.
