Fragrant white, star shaped flowers. Ziva is an improved Paperwhite clone that is totally virus free. It is also more floriferous with stronger growth and up to three stems per bulb. This exquisite variety can contrast with other, brighter relatives. Flowers open very early season.

Also known as Jonquils or Jonquil type daffodils, Scented Daffodil flowers `cluster` together along the stems forming an impressive display. These blooms have a strong, sweet fragrance that carries beautifully throughout the garden. A top choice for beginners and warmer climates, Scented Daffodils are virtually indestructible, simply plant and enjoy.

Scented Daffodils are easy, 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. 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.
