Product Information

One of the prettiest of daffodils, Narcissus 'Thalia' will add pleasing highlights to any garden in spring. Once a favourite of Victorian gardeners, the flowers emerge as a delicate greeny-white, maturing to bright creamy white as they open, contrasting beautifully against dark-green foliage.

Sometimes known as 'Angel's Tears', this classic trumpet daffodil has multi-headed, downward-pointing blooms that will dance delightfully in a spring breeze.

With stems of medium height, 'Thalia' is a versatile variety that will look great in the front of beds, borders and rock gardens, or in pots and containers.  Plant them in groups or drifts through grass or underplant deciduous trees and shrubs, where they will naturalise easily and reward with bigger and better displays each year.

They also make a fabulous cut flower not least for their wonderfully strong fragrance so be sure to plant enough to fill your vases several times over.

Supplied as a pack of 20 bulbs for planting in the autumn. Plant them in groups of 6-10 for maximum impact, in full sun or semi-shade, either on their own or with other spring-flowering bulbs of different colours for an eye-catching display.

Top Tips

  • For a natural look, throw a handful onto a grassy area and plant them where they fall.
  • Which way up? Usually pointy end up, but if you are not sure, plant the bulb on its side and it will right itself.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots before planting to encourage faster and more reliable establishment.
  • Propagate by removing offsets in the early summer to populate new areas.

 

Care Information

Planting advice for your Narcissus bulbs:

  • Plant 10-15cm deep and 10cm apart in sun or partial shade, in well-drained, fertile soil.
  • Spring-flowering bulbs should be planted in the autumn for displays next season. This allows them to establish a good root system before the weather becomes too cold.
  • Please check the bag for any additional planting instructions.
  • Use a good-quality potting compost such as our premium professional compost for the best results.
  • The bulbs are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing; they will just need a good watering when you plant them, and thereafter only when the soil is dry.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or in the ground to naturalise.

Aftercare advice for your Narcissus bulbs:

  • Water frequently and if in pots, ensure that the compost doesn't dry out.
  • While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.
  • Leave foliage to die back naturally after flowering; never tie up the foliage or cut it back while still green. This allows as much energy as possible to go back into the bulbs for the following year.
  • Leave them in the ground once they die back and they will come back with bigger and better displays each year.
