How to grow daffodils
Daffodils are easy to grow and are tolerant of a range of conditions. Simply plant them at around three times their own depth in ordinary garden soil. It’s worth taking the time to deadhead them after the flowers have faded. Daffodils can be long-lived and get better every year - especially if you can resist the temptation to cut the foliage back too soon. Avoid cutting back the leaves until they’ve started to turn yellow - the plant needs them to feed itself and make flowers for next year.
Picking the right variety for your garden
There’s a daffodil to suit any garden - even if you’ve only got a window box, small varieties such as Tête-à-Tête will complement your spring bedding plants perfectly. In larger gardens why not try naturalising dwarf narcissi under trees and shrubs? Larger varieties are ideal for beds and borders where their bright colours and trumpet-like flowers will sing out and provide plenty of springtime cheer.
