Organic botanical daffodils

The Narcissus tazetta 'Minnow' is a beautiful botanical daffodil with up to 5 flowers per stem. Despite their relatively low height, they stand out for their striking presence. They also give off a wonderful scent that bees love! This daffodil is very suitable for both pots and the garden."

The Narcissus 'Minnow' is a botanical daffodil from the tazetta family, with small cream-colored flowers and a small yellow corona. This family consists of small daffodil species with multiple flowers. The plant reaches a height of about 30 centimeters and has several bluish-green flower stems per bulb. The narrow, long leaves protrude above the flowers and each flower stem can carry 5 to 10 flowers. This daffodil blooms early, for about 4 weeks in the period from March to April.

It is very suitable as a cut flower, it smells wonderful and pollinators such as bees can easily access the nectar through the open crown.

Combine her with Tulipa 'Little Beauty' or Tulipa 'Tarda' for a beautiful effect.

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

A 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. When planting in pots, the flowerbulbs may be planted closer together and may extend half above the ground for a decorative effect. However, after flowering, the flowerbulbs should be planted back in the garden, while maintaining the planting depth and spacing discussed.

Plant the 'Minnow' 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.

Daffodil bulbs are poisonous and are therefore avoided by rodents such as voles. Use them to protect other flowerbulbs by planting them through and around them.

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 daffodil 'Minnow' is a strong species that naturalizes well. She comes back every year faithfully. Provide organic food annually for optimal results.

Propagation

For propagation, the flowerbulb can be dug out at the beginning of summer. The flowerbulb 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 flowerbulbs grow quickly.

Origin of the tazetta 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 received the wild 'Thalia' from Spain and in 1613 he received 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. There they even started growing daffodils earlier than in the Netherlands.
