Narcissi Division 6 Cyclamineus Mother Duck has pale yellow perianth slightly darker at the edge. Funnel shaped, golden yellow corona, frilled. This was a new introduction last year and we can confirm it deserves its place in our selection. The flowers are quite exceptional and the slight frilling on the cup is a really nice touch by mother nature!
Cyclamineus narcissi, such asNarcissi Division 6 Cyclamineus Mother Duck are a really popular group to be used in pots, containers and rockeries as well as borders in the garden. Suitable to be planted in many varied soil types as long as they are free draining, in heavier soils add grit or well rotted organic matter to help with drainage. In lighter soils such as sand add humus matter which will help to retain nutrients and water. Cultivate the soils to a depth of 15-20cms and plant bulbs 10cms deep and 10cms apart. When planting in containers the distance apart can be reduced to 5cms if required. Protect the early growth in the spring from slugs and snails and remove dead heads after flowering to get the best from them. Remember to feed the bulbs during the leaf and flower stage with bone meal, tomato feed or similar.
