What should I be doing in the Garden this month?
Daffodils Large Cupped Daffodils Fortune
With lovely circular flowers, Fortune is a deep yellow throughout with broad petals and a large funnel which is flared and neatly serrated at the rim. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Camelot 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. Fortune will grow to around 40cm and is recommended for exhibition.
