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.

Narcissus ‘Stratosphere’ is a cheery, scented daffodil that has been awarded the Royal Horticultural Society’s prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM). It has a bowl shaped trumpet and the petals are slightly wavy. All daffodils most enjoy soils that are well-drained but moist during the growing season. Plant bulbs at one-and-a-half times their own depth, in sun or partial shade.
