Narcissus 'Bridal Crown' bears loose clusters of double creamy white flowers on tall stems. Flowers have a strong, sweet fragrance. It's perfect for growing in spring container displays and borders, and makes an excellent cut flower.

Grow in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Narcissus 'Bridal Crown' can also be forced in winter – simply plant bulbs 5cm deep in pots and keep in a cold frame outdoors until the roots appear. Then move them into the greenhouse, gradually acclimatising the bulbs to indoor temperatures. Water freely and feed with weak high potash fertiliser once a week. Bring into the house once the flower buds appear.
