The daffodil is the beacon of springtime and is one of the world's favourite cut and potted flowers.
They are very easy to grow - purchase bulbs in late summer to autumn and plant in well drained soil either directly in the ground or in pots.
Keep moist over winter but not so much as to waterlog them and increase water when leaves appear.
This bulbous plant is so varied it has been classified into 12 divisions - 1 Trumpet, 2 Large cupped, 3 Small cupped, 4 Double flowered, 5 Triandrus, 6 Cyclamineus, 7 Jonquilla, 8 Tazetta, 9 Poeticus, 10 Wild species, 11 Split corona and 12, Miscellaneous.
Daffodils make good cut flowers and tend to last well indoors.
