Spring Flowering Bulbs
2022
Daffodils
Most  daffodils are very drought hardy, requiring no water during summer and early autumn, preferring their moisture from May to October.

The number (in brackets), after the name of the daffodil indicates the relative time of flowering. Number 0 being the earliest - around June: and 6 the latest - in October.

We do recommend that people who live in areas which experience a constant dry late spring, purchase daffodils that are coded between 0-3 and any of the jonquils listed on this page.

Stock listed in this catalogue is available until mid-April  unless otherwise stated or sold out. Please advise substitutes in case an item becomes unavailable.

As a further matter of interest:

Daffseek is an interesting website for those who are very keen on Daffodils.
It has a search engine that allows you to type in the name of a variety, this comes up with photos and a full description of the flower.
