Semi Dwarf Daffodil
Multi-flowering with up to four sweetly-fragrant blooms per stem. Flowers are an attractive shade of lemon yellow.
These easy-to-grow jonquilla daffodils are dainty but packed with flower power, bearing up to four fragrant blooms per stem. Narcissus 'Pipit' are long-lasting beauties which flower from March onwards, with outer petals in an beautiful shade of lemon yellow. The central trumpet starts the same colour as the outer petals, then gradually fades to a creamy-white with age, providing lovely bicolour interest. Low maintenance and extremely reliable, these hardy daffodils are perfect for growing in borders, pots or through grass where they will flourish and naturalise each spring, bringing a bright and cheerful display with more and more flowering stems each time.
Very resilient, thriving in most conditions and providing a lovely display every year with very little fuss.

Narcissus 'Pipit' thrives in full sun or partial shade can be grown in any free-draining soil in beds, borders, containers or through grass. Either remove the pot and plant into well prepared soil by digging a hole twice the size of the pot, or simply plunge the pot into a border or larger container and remove it once the flowers have been enjoyed. Plant bulbs during autumn in holes 2-3 times the depth of the bulb. Position one bulb per hole with the pointed side facing upwards and cover back over with soil. Narcissus bulbs don't need to be watered in and when in growth they do not require watering unless they are planted in pots which look thoroughly dry. There is no need to feed Narcissus, but an occasional application of all-purpose liquid feed before they flower may increase flowering. Allow fading flowers and foliage to die back naturally.
