A classic dwarf daffodil suitable for growing all round the garden, providing reliable colour every spring.
Narcissus 'Tete-a-Tete' is a real classic when it comes to spring flowers. This much-loved variety has long been a popular favourite for bringing a cheery splash of spring colour the virtually any garden space. Dwarf in size but big on impact, each stem produces up to three bright yellow blooms. Plant them in groups for a high-impact display of yellow, or dot them around the garden in borders, pots, rockeries or woodland areas to create eye-catching little highlights. These reliable and resilient plants are long lasting and very easy to grow, bringing a long season of easy colour to any outside space. Fully hardy and perennial, they naturalise over the years and come back each spring in bigger and bolder groups.
This easy-to-grow and reliable dwarf daffodil is highly versatile, thriving in most conditions and a particularly good choice for small spaces.

Narcissus 'Tete-a-Tete' thrives in full sun or partial shade can be grown in any free-draining soil in beds, borders, rockeries or containers. 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.
