Large yellow daffodils are the kind everyone expects to see dancing in the spring breeze, and Narcissus 'Dutch Master' is one of the largest and finest. Its colour is flawless, an intense bright yellow with a smooth uniform finish. Although sometimes forced and grown as pot plant for display or cutting, it's the supreme variety for massing in borders, parts of the lawn or under trees.

Grow Narcissus 'Dutch Master' in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Allow foliage to die down completely after flowering and mulch annually with well-rotted manure or compost. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
