What should I be doing in the Garden this month?
Daffodils Jonquil Daffodils Orange Queen
Dating back to the beginning of the last century, the very beautiful and sweetly scented Jonquil Orange Queen produces flowers of a yellow orange with a cup of the same colour. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Jonquil Orange Queen is a Division 10 – Species and Dwarf Narcissi, a shorter variation of the N. jonquil, a variety which will bear multiple scented flowers per stem, its rush-like foliage is usually as long as its stem. A well-drained soil, deeply worked and containing some humus is ideal for narcissus and they will not tolerate a waterlogged soil. Jonquil Orange Queen will grow to around 25cm.
