How do I plant the narcissus?
It’s best to plant the narcissus as soon as possible after receipt. Plant it directly into the ground, in a flower pot or in a spacious planter. The narcissus grows best in loose, well-drained soil. A sheltered spot in the sun or semi-shade will do just fine.
The narcissus should be planted at a depth of 3 times the height of the bulb. For instance, if the narcissus bulb is 5 cm high it should be planted at a depth of 15 cm. The distance between small bulbs is 5 - 8 cm and 10 - 15 cm between larger ones.
Planting can be done in spring as well as in autumn. Use a small spade or a special bulb planter for planting. Plant the bulb with the tip up and the roots down.
How do I plant the narcissus in a pot or planter?
Put a layer of hydro grains on the bottom of a decorative pot. Place the flower bulb in the potting soil at the right depth. Water immediately after planting. A narcissus in a pot is not frost hardy. So put a layer of bubble wrap on the inside of the pot or put it inside before frost sets in.
Planting the narcissus in the garden
Find a suitable place in the border or create a flowerbed. Loosen the soil well and divide the narcissus bulbs across the surface. That can be done in groups of 6 or spread out evenly. Plant the narcissus as indicated above, water immediately, and don't walk on the freshly planted area.
