How to grow

Cultivation

Plant bulbs at one-and-a-half times their own depth in autumn, slightly deeper in light soils and in grass, in well-drained, preferably slightly alkaline, soil that is reasonably moist in the growing season in spring, in full sun or light dappled shade, though they will flower best in full sun. See daffodil cultivation for further advice

Propagation

Propagate by division: separate and replant offsets as the leaves fade in early summer, or in early autumn before new roots are produced
