Organic cluster daffodils

The Narcissus 'Bridal Crown' is a bicoloured, double-flowered cluster daffodil with shiny cream-coloured petals and a light orange centre. It grows to about 35 centimeters high with several bluish-green flower stems per bulb and narrow long leaves with the flowers still above and has several small double flowers on a flower stem. She is an early flowering daffodil that blooms for about 3 weeks in the period March and April.

She is very suitable as a cut flower, she smells fantastic!
Combine it with Tulipa 'Muscadet' or Ornithogalum balansae.

How, where and when do I plant a daffodil bulb?

An organic daffodil flowerbulb needs a cold period, so plant it in the ground from September to January. The planting depth is 2 to 3 times the height of the flowerbulb itself and the planting distance is 2 to 3 times the width of the flowerbulb itself.

In the case of pot planting, the flowerbulbs may be planted closer together and may be half above the ground for decoration. After flowering, the flowerbulbs should be planted back in the garden with the planting depth and spacing discussed above.

Plant the daffodil 'Bridal Crown' in a sunny to semi-shaded spot in the garden, pot or lawn. Plant it in groups in a nutrient-rich, water-permeable, preferably calcareous, sandy soil, but it will also grow in clay soil. As long as the soil is well-drained and does not retain excess water. If you have clay soil, you can improve the soil by adding organic matter such as compost or well-rotted manure to improve drainage.

Daffodil bulbs are poisonous, which is why they are avoided by rodents such as voles. Use them as a natural protection for other flowerbulbs by planting them around and between the other bulbs.

Care of the daffodil

Provide organic nutrition during planting. Cut off the spent flowers at the top and let the rest of the foliage die. Only cut it off when the leaf has completely dried out. The Narcissus 'Bridal Crown' is a strong species that naturalizes well, it faithfully returns every year. Provide organic food annually for optimal results.
We recommend Bio Kultura for organic potting soil, plant food and other soil improvers!

Propagation

For propagation, the flower bulb can be dug out at the beginning of summer. The flower bulb is dried and stored in a warm place. They can be planted again from September. Plant the small bulbs separately and provide organic nutrition so that the small flower bulbs grow quickly.

Origin of the daffodil

The daffodil is an ancient genus dating from the late Oligocene and early Miocene epochs. They originate from southwestern Europe but are currently found in many parts of the world. Even the Bible references the symbolic flower in Isaiah 35:1:

"The desert and the barren land will rejoice, the steppe will rejoice and blossom like a daffodil, it will blossom abundantly" .

Carolus Clusius was the one who brought them to the Netherlands in 1565. He then brought the tazetta daffodil from Gibraltar, in 1599 he got the wild species 'Thalia' from Spain and in 1613 he got the rare poeticus .

There are approximately 18,000 cultivars of which approximately 500 are grown. Most daffodils, also called daffodils, are grown in the United Kingdom. They started growing daffodils there earlier than in the Netherlands.
