What should I be doing in the Garden this month?
Daffodils Jonquil Daffodils Blushing Lady
With two or three dainty flowers per stem, Blushing Lady opens primrose yellow and develops a narrow white halo at the base whilst its cup turns a delicious soft pink. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Blushing Lady is a Division 7 – Jonquil Narcissi, a variety which will bear multiple scented flowers per stem, its rush-like foliage is usually as long as its stem. For indoor cultivation these Jonquils should be grown in a cold greenhouse or frame and not in the house. A well-drained soil, deeply worked and containing some humus is ideal for narcissus and they will not tolerate a waterlogged soil. Blushing Lady will grow to around 35cm.
