Every so often a daffodil comes along that makes you say wow! For us, Neon does just that.

It has a broad, gold perianth paired with a large, frilled cup and white eye. On opening the cup is almost the same colour as the perianth, but as it matures it fades to white. This colour combination is fairly innovative in the world of daffodils as breeders usually aim for a light perianth and dark trumpet. Flowers open mid to late season.

Great in the garden and a cinch to grow. We have trialled and tested these varieties to ensure they are good and hardy, and we are confident of their quality. They can be relied upon to produce masses of unfailing spring colour for many years to come.

Daffodils are easy and they like the simple things in life; plenty of sun and a well drained soil.

Plant Daffodil bulbs three times as deep as the bulb is high, with the pointy end up. This depth will help protect them from heat and soil erosion, as well as providing strength for the stem.

Space your Daffodils 5-10cm or apart. Planting them closer will give a more dramatic display. We like to plant ours three to a hole as this creates instant effects. When you use this method in garden beds, with smaller clumps more often, you get the joy of repetition. Another benefit is that when the foliage dies back it is more inconspicuous.

Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem, or simply snap the finished flower off. This has two advantages; the first is this stops the plant focusing on seed production, so you can increase your bulbs, second it looks better!

Allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed as this is when the bulbs are gathering energy and nutrients for next year's blooms. Keep the plants relatively moist during this time, and add a little general purpose fertiliser. Daffodils appreciate Potash and slow release fertiliser brands which are low in nitrogen (so you get more flowers and less foliage). Don't be too heavy handed, you won't need much as they are not heavy feeders.

Daffodil 'Neon' is Division 2, Large Cupped.
