Narcissus Rijnveld''s Early Sensation is one of the earliest daffodils to bloom, even newly planted bulbs are in flower in early January and established clumps often a week earlier. They are all yellow flowers, with the trumpet that are quite widely flared. None of which is very abnormal or remarkable, but wait till they flower before the snowdrops ! They are tough and hardy though probably not something to plant everywhere, after all it is important to get a seasonal feel and yellow daffodils are not really a January thing, but an isolated group will give you hope of the spring to come.
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 Rijnveld''s Early Sensation bulbs should be planted really quite deeply with 4-6" (10-15cm) of soil over the bulb, where it will remain more cool, moist and safe from activity above them in the summer. They should clump up from being planted about 4" (10cm) apart, further apart for more ''relaxed'' planting 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.
