What should I be doing in the Garden this month?
Daffodils Large Cupped Daffodils Martha Stewart
A very beautiful variety, Martha Stewart has milky white perianth petals and a large cup which is primrose yellow which is broadly banded with a coral pink at its fringed edges. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Martha Stewart 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. Martha Stewart will grow to around 40cm.
