Narcissus Tete-a-Tete has been widely grown since it was raised soon after WW2 and many people’s favourite small daffodil. Very short when first in flower, extending in stem length as it matures and long lasting in cool conditions. Deep golden yellow and multi-headed from the biggest bulbs.

RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Narcissus Tete-a-Tete has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit because it has proved to be reliable in appropriate conditions and a good performing plant. 

Planting Instructions

Narcissus Tete-a-Tete bulbs should be planted 2-3" (5-8cm) apart in any reasonable soil, 3" deep (8cm). perhaps amongst some Iris reticulata or with some Scillas as companions for when they flower. Alternatively pot them into John Innes No 2 for early colour, then 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.
