How to grow and care for your Narcissus Bulbs

Plant the bulbs in Autumn for a March display. Dig a hole 8-10cm deep and place the bulbs around 8cm apart. If you are planting large quantities it is often easier to dig a trench and place the bulbs pointed side up and cover over. Even if the bulbs fall to their side it will not effect their ability to grow. Narcissus Snipe are happiest in sunshine but they will grow in semi shade too.

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.

You can propagate narcissus bulbs by division when clumps have formed. Gently lift and separate bulbs, to replant as the leaves fade in early summer, or in early autumn before new roots are produced.
