Narcissus 'Tete-a-tete' is one of the most popular dwarf daffodil varieties available. Standing at only 15cm high, its small size makes it ideal for planting in patio containers or at the front of the border. The deep golden yellow flowers appear in early spring, with each stem bearing up to 3 blooms.

Plant Narcissus 'Tete-a-tete' 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. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
