Daffodils are mainly native to the Mediterranean region, lovers of good drainage and a sunny spot. Over the years, breeding has resulted in over 25,000 different cultivars being created and a classification system of 13 different daffodil divisions being set up. These vary from large cup daffodils to double daffodils and cover a whole host of colours from yellow and orange to white and even pink! Suttons offer an extensive range of daffodil bulbs for sale.

If you want a daffodil flower to look like a daffodil, then the trumpet types are for you. 'King Alfred' is a classic heritage yellow, bold and beautiful. It's a long way from our delicate native Narcissus pseudonarcissus - still with a trumpet - but small and dainty in cream and yellow, this one is excellent for naturalising in grass reminiscent of swathes found in the Lake District and Gloucestershire.

For the sweetest scents, some of the miniature daffodils can't be beaten - 'Minnow' is delicious as is 'Hawera'. Meanwhile, the double 'Erlicheer' will take your breath away. Plant alongside hyacinths for a real punch of perfume! Suttons offer a Scented Collection of daffodils which is well worth investing in.

Daffodils breeding in England was prevalent in the 19th and 20th centuries and is still popular today with Cornwall leading the way. It was in the 1920s that pink was first introduced to a daffodil, and since then this colouration has appeared regularly in new varieties. Suttons sell 'Chromacolour' with a peachy pink cup - something the neighbours will covet.

If your garden is in shade, then 'Thalia' is your best option, for she is happy in sun or shade and can even cope with a slightly damp site. This is the daffodil that top horticulturalists adore. Sophisticated and stunning, with multiple flowers per stem - a real botanical aristocrat.

When to plant daffodils bulbs?

Autumn is the best time to plant daffodil bulbs as it gives them time to produce new roots before winter strikes.

How to plant daffodil bulbs?

Plant daffodil bulbs with the pointy end up. If you plant them too shallow you may get dividing bulbs or floppy stems. Plant too deep and the daffodils might not emerge from the soil!

How deep to plant my daffodil bulbs?

Plant the daffodil bulbs at a depth equal to three times the height of the bulb. The dwarf varieties should be spaced 10 to 15 cm (4" to 6") apart and the taller varieties 20 to 25 cm (8" to 10") apart. This will prevent the daffodil bulbs from drying out.

How to plant daffodils in containers?

A pot or container is a great way to display daffodils in a small space. Just plant the bulbs in the same way as you would in the ground, but a bit closer together, about one bulb width apart.

For more information on planting daffodils for naturalising see our blog

With all daffodils, do not clear away foliage after flowering for at least 6 weeks. The flower bulbs use these leaves to soak up energy and goodness for storage to enable strong flowering next year. 

Daffodils are the easiest spring bulbs to grow and bring joy for years to come, what's not to love?
