Narcissus Pipe Major - Daffodil Bulbs

  • Catalogue Code 2100-4841
  • Pack Contents: 12x Narcissus Bulbs

The Narcissus Pipe Major bulbs bloom in late April quite a bit later than many other daffodil bulbs so its flowers will keep the early tulips company in beds and borders, and containers. The oval petals of this dainty but striking daffodil bulb are set off by a brilliant red, cup-shaped trumpet. Team it with showy yellow tulips or scented wallflowers.

Daffodils are classified into 10 divisions according to flower type and shape. Narcissus Pipe Major is in Division 2, a group known as Large-cupped daffodils; this refers to the prominent central trumpets. The daffodils are characterised by their single flowers and short but showy trumpets, they make excellent garden flowers.

We suggest planting daffodil bulbs in September-October, Plant the bulbs around 2-3 times their depth, into free draining soil. Avoid planting bulbs in soil that gets waterlogged; on heavy soils add grit to the planting hole to prevent bulbs rotting. For a natural effect scatter the bulbs and plant them where they fall.
