Delivered to you from September
A selected form of N. bulbocodium (the hoop petticoat forms) with masses of large, butter yellow-blooms which flower quite early with a great scent. The foliage is narrow and needle-like, indicating that they would prefer a sunnier situation.
Narcissus Oxford Gold 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 Oxford Gold should be planted about 3-4" (8-10cm) deep and only 1-2" (3-5cm) apart, in small clumps of 3-5 bulbs, in a sunny well drained not too limey soil in a sunny site. 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.
