Daffodils bring a burst of bright joy to our roadside verges, our parks and gardens. Easy to grow they will soon establish themselves wherever you choose to plant them. Recently they have survived a battering by strong winds, snow and frosts.

They do well almost anywhere, in plant pots or in a large swathe of colour.

Daffodils (Narcissus

They mainly originate in southern Europe and North Africa, although there is a native British species, Narcissus pseudonarcissus. Daffodils have been widely cultivated for centuries, resulting in the vast range now available, with various flower shapes, sizes and colours. RHS Gardening
