Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten. Daffodil bulbs should be planted outdoors in October and November, with the pointed end facing upwards, at a depth of approximately 10cm (4"). Choose a sunny or semi shaded position in moist, free draining soil. Daffodils look particularly eye-catching when grown in drifts in borders or informal areas of grass. Cast the bulbs across the area and plant them where they land for a really natural effect.

For an attractive indoor display, plant Daffodils in containers in bulb fibre and position them in a cool garage or other well ventilated, dark position at a maximum temperature of 10°C. Water when necessary to keep the compost moist. When the growing shoots reach a height of 10 cm (4") move the containers to a cool bright position indoors (approximately 16°C).

When growing narcissus, it is essential to allow their foliage to die back naturally before removing it in June/ July. This will help to feed the bulb and ensure another cheery display next spring.
