Daffodils flower early in the season, bringing cheer to the garden when little else is in flower. Some cultivars flower as early as January, while others flower in late-March to April. By choosing carefully you can have daffodils flowering continually in your garden for up to four months.

Perfect for borders, Narcissus 'Topolino' produces small, star-shaped, highly fragrant flowers with white petals and golden yellow trumpets. It's perfect for growing in spring container displays, rockeries and borders, and makes an excellent cut flower.

Grow Narcissus 'Topolino' in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Deadhead spent blooms to prevent the plants wasting energy on seed production, and allow the foliage to die down completely after flowering. Mulch annually with well-rotted compost or manure and divide congested clumps every three to five years.
