Prepare your soil well and work in plenty of organic matter such as well-rotted manure or compost. A good idea is to naturalise your bulbs in your lawn, where they can eventually spread and create a lovely drift. Plant your bulbs with the point facing upwards at a depth of at least twice the bulb height. PLEASE NOTE: Take care when handling Narcissus as they are toxic if ingested into your system and can cause irritation to your skin.
If they aren’t flowering well, provide a top-dress of slow release fertiliser around the base of your plant each spring. Deadhead the flowers once they fade so the plant can store energy to enrich the bulb for the next season. Let the foliage die back naturally before cutting them.
It is possible to propagate Narcissus by offsets as the leaves fade in early summer.
