Narcissi Division 7 Jonquilla Sailboat AGM has been awarded a garden merit by the RHS because of its all round performance. The flowers open as a lemon yellow with white petals. After a few days turn into a lovely pure white multi-headed jonquilla.
Jonquilla narcissi such as Narcissi Division 7 Jonquilla Sailboat AGM usually produce flowers that are scented so they are a really popular group. 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.
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.
This is a late season daffodil that will naturalise very well in the garden and can be left undisturbed for many years.
