Narcissus Mite is a charming small daffodil with a long narrow trumpet and dainty proportions. The flowers are deep yellow and it shows its cyclamineous parentage with the swept-back perianth segments.
This plant/cultivar 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 Mite bulbs should be planted 3" deep (8cm) and 2-3" (5-8cm) apart in any reasonable soil where they will remain cool, moist and safe from activity above them in the summer. They should clump up from being planted about 2-3" (5-8cm) apart, even further for more ''relaxed'' planting. We would suggest you plant them in distinct groups and not randomly as the effect is generally better. Alternatively they can be potted in John Innes No 2 for early colour and to plant out in the garden later. 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.
