Delivered to you from September
Narcissus Hawera was raised in New Zealand, hence the Maori name. This is a small yet elegant daffodil with narrow foliage and soft yellow scented multi-headed flowers which looks great in rock gardens, at the edge of paths, in containers, troughs or window-boxes. It is happier in a drier and sunnier site than many of its cousins. Pack them in quite tightly for a mass of colour on a rockery.
Narcissus Hawera has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit because it has proved to be reliable in appropriate conditions and a good performing plant.
Narcissus Hawera bulbs should be planted quite deeply with 4-6" (10-15cm) of soil over the bulb and 3" (8cm) apart. They are better in a warm spot, reasonably damp in spring and in the sun, dry in summer and safe from activity above them during the summer. They should clump up from being planted about 3" (8cm) apart, even further apart for more ''relaxed'' planting. We would suggest you plant them in distinct groups and not randomly as the effect is generally better. Do not be tempted to cut back or tidy the foliage after flowering as this period of replenishment of the bulb''s starchy food reserves is critical to future flowering. A liquid feed while starchy leaves are still green will benefit clumps in poorer soil.
