25Kg Bag Of Daffodils, Narcissus 'Ice Follies'

Ready To Plant, Daffodils And Spades

Where a lime tree once stood 25kg of daffodils (approx. 425) were planted today. The daffodils chosen, Narcissus 'Ice Follies', are large cupped, flowering in March, white with a pale yellow crown that changes to creamy white with age and are good for naturalising.

Planting Bulbs

To achieve a more natural look the bulbs are scattered randomly across the area and planted where they fell. The team worked together digging the holes and planting the bulbs, completing the task in just a few hours, they must now wait until March to see this newly created bulb area in flower.

  1. Glad to see you have used spades! I always imagine bulb planters would be hard work and much slower.
    I just lever up the turf and tuck bulbs under in clumps. In my own lawn I can mow between them better that way rather than when they have been scattered completely randomly and planted individually.
    Recently two of us planted seven of those 25kg bags in a field for a client!

  2. Hi Roger, seven bags, wow and our new apprentice thought 1 bag was alot! That display will look amazing I bet, will think of ours seven times bigger. Best regards Ali
