Don’t be afraid of growing different varieties of daffodils. There are so many to choose from and it’s always lovely to see variation grown alongside the classic British native.
I have planted mine into a plot of land, I want to encourage them to spread and fill the area. If you are worried about them spreading, or would like a burst of colour by the front door.. plant them into containers. Use compost and some grit to assist with drainage.
I have planted:
- Narcissus pseudonarcissus (British native daffodil)
- Golden ducat
- Pheasant’s eye
I will be using these daffodils as cutting flowers. The daffodil is the iconic image of spring and I can’t wait to see it growing in my own garden! It’s important to grow your own cutting flowers, it supports native wildlife and makes an area look fantastic.
