Why We Love It

The pure white 'Actaea' Daffodil features a yellow eye rimmed with red and form a clump of narrow, strap-shaped leaves.

These daffodils are perfect for planting in groups in beds and borders, under deciduous shrubs and outdoor containers.

Daffodils like well-drained but moist, humus rich soil in sun or partial shade. Avoid very dry areas such as under conifers.

Plant them informally in groups in beds and borders, under deciduous shrubs and trees or in lawns and outdoor containers.

Allow the foliage to die naturally as early removal can cause the bulb not to flower in the following year.

Planting Calendar

Plant in June, July, August, September, October, November.

Flowers in April.

Planting and Care

These are happy in full or partial sun with any type of neutral or alkaline soil that's moist and well-draining.

These bulbs should ideally be planted at a depth of 10cm/4 inches and a distance of 10cm/4 inches.

Into the Ground

  1. Find a sunny but sheltered spot for your bulbs.
  2. Dig some holes twice the size of the rootballs so that your bulbs can be placed 10 cm apart.
  3. Mix in some organic compost and add the bulbs to the holes.
  4. Backfill with soil and water well.

Into a Pot

  1. Find a container large enough for a few bulbs.
  2. Fill it with soil and dig a few holes twice the size of the rootballs. 
  3. Place the bulbs so that they touch, to create a clumping effect.
  4. Cover with soil, just letting the tip of the bulbs jut out.
  5. Gently firm the soil.
  6. Water generously.
  7. Place the pot in a cool, dark and moist place.
