As soon as possible after receiving the Narcissi ‘Tête à Tête’ 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 with a planting distance of approximately 5 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. The more narcissi bulbs you plant the greater effect the flowers will have. Plant in groups of at least 6 bulbs, or divide about 25 to 50 or more bulbs evenly in the garden border or flower bed. Narcissi ‘Tête à Tête’ grows best in moist, well-drained soil in full sun, but also does well in partial shade.

After flowering the bulbs can be planted in the garden.
