The bulbs can be planted in open ground or in a pot. Potted bulbs aren't frost hardy, so bring the pot indoors or protect the plant with bubble wrap. Space the bulbs out when planting in open ground. The distance between plants should be three times the width of the bulb. Maintain a planting depth of three times the bulb's height. Plant the bulbs in full sun or partial shade. Water the bulb immediately after planting. Don't water it until the soil feels dry to the touch.

- 10x Daffodil 'Pink Charm' (Narcissus) white-pink

As soon as possible after receiving the Tulip 'Mistress' and Narcissi 'Pink Pride' bulbs they can be planted in the garden, a flower pot or in a planter. If not they must be kept in a frost-free area. Bulbs planted in a flower pot are not usually frost resistant. Plant the bulbs in a planting hole that is three times as deep as the height of the bulbs. A bulb of 5 cm should be planted in a 15 cm deep hole. The planting distance between the narcissi and tulips is approximately 10 cm. Loosen the soil well and plant the bulbs with the point facing upwards. Refill the planting hole and avoid walking over the soil. Plant the bulbs one by one with a small trowel or with a special bulb planter. For larger groups make a wider hole and plant more bulbs in it. Most tulips and narcissi thrive in fertile, well-drained, humus-rich soils, in a sunny or partially shaded spot.

That’s why we recommend each year adding new and extra bulbs to make your borders and pots even more colourful. Water in dry periods.
