Narcissus

Narcissus

Our collection of narcissus (popularly known as daffodils), features predominantly the smaller varieties and some species. These have the advantage of being useful in containers as well as borders and are especially appropriate in smaller gardens. In the open garden they are far more weather resistant than tall, top-heavy types, and they also die down more discreetly, their less obvious foliage being quickly obscured by the surrounding growth of neighbouring plants. Many are eminently suitable for naturalising.This year, we have added a couple of historic varieties, which can be difficult to come by but which we love for their elegant informality.

AGM denotes the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
