Narcissus 'Canaliculatus' is a popular dwarf daffodil, bearing clusters of beautiful white and yellow flowers in early spring. Its small size makes it ideal for planting in patio containers or at the front of the border, and it makes a pretty cut flower.

Plant Narcissus 'Canaliculatus' bulbs in early autumn in moist but well-drained soil, at one and half times their own depth. Alternatively buy potted plants in spring for instant colour. Allow foliage to die down completely after flowering, and feed with a high-potash fertiliser to encourage flowering the following year.
