Daffodil and Narcissi bulbs were introduced during the 19th Century and are hybrids of wild species , unlike tulips and hyacinths which have been around since the 17th Century.
Nothing heralds the sign of spring like a mass of daffodils and narcissi swaying in the breeze – buying in bulk is one of the cheapest ways of getting the effect . Spring flowering daffodils and narcissi can be planted in groups or in pots to give colour to even the smallest garden .
Spring flowering bulbs need to be planted in the Autumn before the end of October and will flourish best if planted in well draining soil in sun or shade.
