Butterfly narcissi such as Narcissi Division 11 Split Corona Orangery are quite a superb group of narcissi. They are now called split corona narcissi and the characteristics of the flowers are very distinctive and colourful. Cultivate soils to a depth of 20cms and plant bulbs 15cms deep in soils that are well drained. In heavier soils add grit and humus matter during cultivation to help with drainage and plant bulbs slightly shallower. In lighter soils ensure they have plenty of humus matter which will provide food and also retain water. They will benefit from using bulb starter when first planting. Feed during the leaf and flower stage to ensure the bulbs are fully nourished to provide the following years growth. Ideal foods are well rotted humus matter, Bone meal and tomato food as they contain high levels of phosphate and potash.
Narcissi/daffodils are divided into many divisions and split corona varieties are ever increasing in popularity. They can be grown in containers as well as in the garden and can be left to naturalise for a number of years.
Protect early growth in the spring from slugs and snails and remove dead heads after flowering to get the best from them.
