Product Information

Bulbs such as Daffodils herald the arrival of spring and these bright bloomers are a must for everyone. With their distinctive trumpets, there are few flowers which are as instantly recognisable.

Perfect for pots, planters, beds and borders, and also make wonderful cut flower displays allowing you to enjoy them in your home too. A popular and robust variety that is one of the first to flower, daffodil 'Carlton' is a large-cupped narcissus with lemon-yellow petals and a slightly paler trumpet.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Reliable and hardy, daffs are possibly the easiest plant to grow - you basically dig a hole, add the bulbs, cover them up and leave them alone! They'll grow almost anywhere too, even happy in light shade and prefer a free-draining soil.
Leave the bulbs in the ground after the flowers have died back, and they'll naturalise to reward you with bigger, better displays, each year for many years to come.

Supplied as a pack of 15 bulbs ready for immediate planting.

Top Tips

  • For a natural look, throw a handful onto a grassy area and then plant them where they fall.
  • Which way up? Pointy end up usually, but don't worry, they soon right themselves in the ground anyway.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Narcissus bulbs:

  • Plant bulbs at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart. e.g. 5cm tall bulbs need to be planted 10cm below the surface of the ground and 20cm apart.
  • Please check the bag for any additional planting instructions.
  • They are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing, they'll just need a good watering when you plant them, and then only when the soil is dry.
  • Leave them in the ground once they die back and they'll come back bigger and better each year.
  • 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.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.


 

Aftercare Advice for your daffodils:

  • 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.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • Water frequently and if in posts ensure that the compost doesn't dry out.
  • Use a good quality potting compost such as our premium professional compost for the best results.
     


 

Cutting your daffodils back:

  • Leave foliage to die back naturally after flowering, never tie up the foliage or cut is back while still green.
  • This allows as much energy as possible to go back into the bulbs for the following year. Only cut back the foliage once it has turned yellow or brown.
