Narcissi Division 12 Miscellaneous Tete-a-Tete AGM is by far the most popular narcissi in ours and probably most other offers. The flowers are multi-headed pure yellow and they last quite a while. As a dwarf narcissi they are very popular in containers but are also quite fantastic in borders and rockeries. We believe they are one of the best varieties for the garden or pots.
Narcissi Division 12 Miscellaneous Tete-a-Tete AGM is ideal for growing in containers or at the front of borders because they will naturalise very well and produce an abundance of flowers. Cultivate soils to a depth of 15cms and plant bulbs 8-10cms deep and 5cms apart in groups of 10 or more for the best effect. Grow 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.
Protect early growth in the spring from slugs and snails and remove dead heads after flowering to get the best from them.
AGM = Award of Garden Merit. As expected Tete a Tete was awarded a garden merit by the RHS.
Flowering Height: 15-20cm
Flowering Period: February-March
Aspect: Semi shade to full sun.
Soil type: Free draining fertile soils that are fertile.
Ideal foods are well rotted humus matter, Bone meal and tomato food as they contain high levels of phosphate and potash.
Tip: Do not cut off or tie up the leaves as this will not allow the bulbs to take in nutrients for the following years growth. They work really well when grown with muscari or dutch crocus.
