History of the double daffodil
The double daffodil (narcissus) is native to Europe. It was first described by the Greek physician Dioscorides in his book De Materia Medica, which was written in the 1st century AD. The double daffodil is thought to have originated from the wild daffodil (Narcissus pseudonarcissus), which is found in woodlands and meadows across Europe. Double daffodils are also called double narcissus. Narcissus is the Latin name for daffodil.
When to plant daffodils
Plant the daffodil bulbs in October until mid-December. This will give the bulbs enough time to produce roots before the sever frost is coming. The daffodils will bloom in February, March or April and will continue to bloom for several weeks. You can plant white daffodils, yellow daffodils, orange daffodils and pink daffodils.
At the same time as daffodils, you can plant tulip bulbs. The tulips will flower a little later, in April or May. Planting daffodils and tulip at the same time ensures that you have colour in your garden longer. Daffodils have a soft colour, so you can plant more striking colours of the tulips to make your garden outstanding. You can think of red tulips or pink tulips.
After the daffodils and tulips have flowered, plant dahlia tubers and flower seeds. Do this in May or June, or plant them already in pots in March of April. The dahlia tubers will flower around July until the first night of frost, because they cannot withstand the frost. Beautiful colours are white dahlias and pink dahlias, you cannot miss them in your garden. Dinnerplate dahlias and cactus dahlias are very special types of dahlias. They make your garden eye-catching.
Flower seeds can fill up your garden. The most popular types are cosmos flower, amaranth, phlox and zinnia. The flower seeds will flower around June until September and all our flower seeds are annual.
