Key information

Daffodil or Narcissus 'Tête-à-tête' is a very popular dwarf daffodil. It is only 15cm high so it looks pretty at the front of borders and in pots on the patio. The bright golden yellow flowers appear in early spring, with each stem bearing up to three blooms. The Royal Horticultural Society have given 'Tête-à-tête' an Award of Garden Merit. The appearance of the daffodil is a sign spring is coming.

How to plant a narcissus or daffodil bulb

When is the best time to plant a daffodil bulb?

Plant daffodil bulbs between September and December for best results. If you haven’t planted by December, they won't last for the following year.

How deep should narcissus bulbs be planted?

How deep to plant daffodil bulbs depends on the size of the bulb. As a general rule, 10-15 cm down but larger bulbs need to be deeper. As a guide, the hole should be 2-3 times as deep as the bulb is high.

How should you space your daffodil bulbs?

Daffodil bulbs perform best when planted 10 cm apart, with smaller bulbs needing less space and large bulbs requiring more space. 

Where can you plant a daffodil bulb?

Plant narcissus bulbs in borders or pots. They are a great way of adding pretty spring colour to borders and a pop of interest to patios, courtyards and window boxes.

Can you plant narcissus as part of a pot display?

Bulbs can be used to create a ‘bulb lasagne’ with different varieties in the same pot. 

Any other tips for planting bulbs?

For best flowering results, store bulbs in a cool, frost free, place until you are ready to plant them. Remove bulbs from their packaging so they can get some fresh air, but make sure your pets don’t nibble them. It is important to plant bulbs within the same season that they are supplied.
