Our wild daffodils are true native daffodils grown from seed sourced from our native woodland or taken from woodlands we work with. We can guarantee our wild daffodil plants are true UK Native species. The daffodil bulbs in the green are 3 year old bulbs and they should flower in their first year after planting. The plants come with bulbs, roots and leaves and sometimes as a small plug. You need to plant the whole plant or whole plug and be careful not to let the roots dry out. We start checking our bulbs in early January and send out for despatch when ready in February to March.
We can guarantee our plants are true UK Native species. Price quoted per plant/bulb. This product has a minimum quantity of 10 plants. For orders over 1000 wild daffodils please contact us and we can arrange bespoke quotations.
All our plants are native British wildflowers grown in Peat-free growing media/compost in our sustainable nursery.
Plant Name: Wild Daffodil (Lent lily)
Latin Name: Narcissus pseudonarcissus Lobularis (Note - some may refer to Narcissus pseudonarcissus spp. pseudonarcissus)
Description: Also known as Lent Lily or Easter Lily this native wild daffodil is still found in native woodlands across the UK. Some areas have seen a decline in numbers due to woodland clearance or changes in woodland management. Help turn back this decline by planting our native wild daffodil in your space and hopefully return our woods and open spaces to their natural habitat once again as William Wordsworth wrote: "when all at once I saw a crowd, A host of golden daffodils".
Flowering Times: March to April
Flower Colour: Lemon Yellow petals with a darker yellow trumpet (Note: There are slight variations of this around the UK but the light yellow petals, which are twisted are usually always present).
Height: Plant stalk is 20-30cm
Management: Wild daffodils will thrive in partial shade of damp woodlands, banks and orchards. They will cope in open grasslands if the grass is cut short following flowering and setting seed. Cutting daffodils too early will weaken the bulbs.
