What should I be doing in the Garden this month?
Daffodils Large Cupped Daffodils Carbineer
A magnificent flower of great substance, Carbineer has a broad, flat rich yellow perianth with a bright deep orange-red cup. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Carbineer is a Division 2 – Large Cupped Narcissi, these have comparable characteristics to the Trumpet Daffodils with a single flower to a stem with a cup which is a similar size to its perianth’s segments. The difference between the daffodils and narcissus is down to the size of the cup, daffodils have a large trumpet while narcissus have a smaller cup. A well-drained soil, deeply worked and containing some humus is ideal for narcissus and they will not tolerate a waterlogged soil. Carbineer will grow to around 45cm.
