General Information: Suitable for all climates except tropical. Very hardy, often surviving in old gardens after everything else has perished. Jonquils flower better in warmer climates than Daffodils. They will generally only flower
from round mature bulbs. If you plant them too shallow they are prone to ‘split up’ into side bulbs too readily to reach maturity. Deeper planted bulbs appear to stay healthier, and split less frequently, thus producing more flowers for
Watering: Water bulbs after planting and not again until foliage appear unless experiencing extremely dry conditions. Once buds appears give a good weekly watering. Prefers a well-drained soil.
Fertilising: Fertilise lightly when planting and after flowering use a commercial bulb fertiliser.
Soil: Well drained soil.
