More Information

Wild Daffodil In the Green (pseudonarcissus lobularis), this narcissus variety is indigenous to the UK and is hugely sought after by serious gardeners and garden designers alike. There are several pseudonarcissus varieties which are smaller than cultivated varieties, the most famous being Obvallaris the Tenby Daffodil from Wales.

Perfectly formed, lemon yellow tapering perianth, with a darker yellow trumpet. Beautifully twisted perianth petals and a long trumpet are the defining features of this little daffodil bulb. Wild Daffodil In the Green (pseudonarcissus lobularis) flowers in March.

Our Wild Daffodil In the Green (pseudonarcissus lobularis) come from cultivated stocks. Buy bulbs in the green for planting this spring, early shipments are still likely to flower this year. Our stocks will be freshly lifted from our own beds, once they are out of the ground they are easy to transplant even after flowering and go on to naturalise year after year.

When caring for pseudonarcissus lobularis, it’s important to provide them with well-draining soil and plenty of sunlight. Water regularly during the growing season, but wait to fertilise until the bulbs are dormant in winter or after the foliage has died back. Additionally, you could divide the bulbs every few years to ensure they remain healthy and blooming. They should naturalise if left undisturbed.

What are Bulbs in the Green?

Wild Daffodil In the Green (pseudonarcissus lobularis) are actively growing flower bulbs, they are usually planted in autumn as a dormant bulb. Many small bulbs can struggle over winter, not because of the cold but because the bulbs have been out of the ground for a long time, so it can be more successful to buy them in spring. As bulbs in the green, the root system and foliage have developed, giving them a better chance to thrive straight away.

By buying Wild Daffodil In the Green (pseudonarcissus lobularis) you are purchasing bulbs that have survived the dormant period. Therefore, each bulb should produce flowers, and that’s what you want!

Caring for your Bulbs in the Green

Do not leave the Wild Daffodil In the Green (pseudonarcissus lobularis) in the bags for too long, try to plant them within a couple of days of receiving them. Make sure the box is open and there is air flow to each pack we send, this is especially important later in spring when the weather begins to warm up.

The trick for most bulbs is keeping them moist, but not water logged. Soil allows a small amount of air around the bulb to prevent them from rotting. The residual moisture in the soil keeps them from drying out.

After planting, your bulbs in the green will need watering well, as they will have lost quite a lot of moisture between lifting and planting. They won’t need to be fed when you plant them, although it can be beneficial when the flowers have finished, to give the new bulbs a better chance to gather nutrients before they become dormant.

The foliage is hardy, and spring bulbs can withstand the cold weather, so don’t worry about frosts.
