Summer Narcissi 'Avalanche' - Bulb
You can plant the Narcissus 'Avalanche' bulbs immediately after receiving them in either the ground or in a pot. When planting the bulbs, make sure that the depth of the hole is twice as deep as the height of the bulb. A 5 cm bulb should therefore be planted in a 10 cm hole. Space the Narcissus 'Avalanche' approximately 10-15 cm apart. Loosen the soil well and plant the tubers with the roots pointing downwards. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. You can plant the bulbs using a trowel or a special bulb planter. For larger groups plant more bulbs into a larger hole.The Summer Narcissus 'Avalanche' makes a great combination plant
The fragrant flowers of the Narcissus 'Avalanche' complement other bulbous plants. Combine the white and yellow flowers with Bessera Elegans and Tigridia Pavonia. Whether combined in a border or in a flower pot, they will have a striking appearance.
You will enjoy these striking, white and yellow narcissi in your garden approximately 8 weeks after planting. Even if you plant them in spring, you will have beautiful flowers in your garden for summer. They can produce up to 12 flowers per stem. The flowers are very fragrant and will definitely attract many admirers, also fantastic as a cut flower in your living room.
All daffodils (Narcissus) are classified under Amaryllidaceae.
The bulbs of the Narcissus 'Avalanche' can remain in the same spot for several years. After flowering add some fertiliser and cut off the faded flower stems so that the energy can go back into the bulb. Only cut off the foliage when it has turned yellow. With proper care, your Narcissus 'Avalanche' will produce lots of flowers next spring.Daffodils over winter
Until planted, daffodils are liable to frost damage. Once in the ground, all daffodils are hardy.
Potted daffs are of course somewhat sensitive to frost so will require protection.
You can protect your potted daffodil bulbs in one, or a combination of, the following ways:
- Store the potted bulbs in a frost-free area that definitely doesn't heat up - daffodil bulbs do need the cold.
- Pack the pot(s) in bubble wrap.
- Line the pot with bubble wrap before filling with soil and planting your bulbs... do ensure drainage holes.
