Spring is not "Sprung" without daffodils, so to speak. What better way to welcome spring than with a burst of colours from daffodils.

This woodland bulb is perfect for naturalising in lawns and under deciduous trees. This is where the bulbs are planted and left on their own to grow and to multiply, eventually forming dense clumps after several years. The lawn area is not cut until the foliage dies down.

Over the years, garderners and horticulturist have bred the humble yellow daffodil into the myriad of colours and shapes available today. The Flowers are now available in Whites, Yellows, Oranges and Reds, and all variations in between. There are even varieties with bits of green.
