A reliable performer that produces year after year. Creamy white petals with a soft yellow trumpet that fades to cream. The 9cm flowers open mid season. Daffodil ‘Ice Follies’ is ranked third in worldwide production behind King Alfred and Dutch Master.

Great in the garden, these daffodils are easy to grow and can be left in the ground to naturalise. 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 reliable spring colour for many years to come.

Don’t let the name throw you off, Garden Daffodils can also be grown in containers!

Daffodils are easy, they like the simple things in life; plenty of sun and a well drained soil. It is this sunny disposition that is appealing to gardeners worldwide. We choose the best varieties for our Australian conditions so you are guaranteed success.

Plant Daffodil bulbs three times as deep as the bulb is high with the pointy end up. The depth will protect them from heat and soil erosion, as well as providing strength for the stem. Space your Daffodils 10-20cm apart, more if you are leaving the bulbs in to naturalise, closer for a more dramatic display.

Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem. Allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed. This is the time when the Daffodil foliage is 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 like Potash and slow release fertiliser brands which are low in nitrogen (this means more flowers and less foliage), and you don’t need much as they are not heavy feeders.
