Narcissus ‘King Alfred’ (trumpet daffodil King Alfred) £1.99
Position: full sun or partial shade Soil: well-drained soil Rate of growth: average Flowering period: March and April Flower colour: golden-yellow Other features: excellent as cut-flowers; contact with the sap may cause skin irritation Hardiness: hardy Bulb size: 12/14 First introduced over 100 years ago, this is still one of the most popular daffodils on the market today. It provides an iconic image of spring, with its gorgeous, golden-yellow flowers that look spectacular when allowed to naturalise and form large drifts. Plant plenty of them so you can pick some for the vase too. Garden care: Plant 10-15cm (4-6in) deep from late summer to early autumn. After flowering feed with a balanced fertiliser, dead-head and allow the leaves to die back naturally before removing them. The 10 kg sack is sold by weight but you can expect to recieve about 100 bulbs.
