Daffodil is really a common name for Narcissus and it’s what we think of when referring to a trumpet variety. Daffodils are divided up into many ‘divisions’. The top division being the trumpet. That is, any daffodil where the cup is longer than the petal. It is the most classic form of narcissus and a timeless representation of spring.
All of our daffodil bulbs come from local farmers around the Lincolnshire area. In this mix you will receive a mixture of all the trumpet varieties we have in stock. This includes early pure yellow flowers to the later pure white flowers, with bi-coloured flowers in-between.
Trumpet Daffodils Mixture bulbs are repellent to squirrels and deer, although slugs and snails can make a bit of a mess early in the year.
How do I plant daffodil bulbs?
Daffodil bulbs are best planted before November to get the roots started, but they will still perform if planted as late as January. They can take most soil types and are fully hardy.
Plant in semi shade or full sun, 10-15 cm deep and anywhere from 5 – 10cm apart. You don’t have to be too precious; watch this video of us planting a 25kg sack of bulbs.
Narcissus are relatively low maintenance and will come back year-on-year. They benefit from being deadheaded as the flowers fade, and allow the leaves to die down naturally, so that the bulbs have nutrients to come back the following year.
Over time, Trumpet Daffodil Mixture will naturalise by spreading seed and by dividing. Just make sure you leave the foliage to die back so they come back the next year. It can take several years for bulblets and seeds to develop into flowers.
