Top Fragrant Daffodils For a bright Spring

Some of my favourite daffodils are the ones that exude a wonderful fragrance in spring and early summer. Some of these scents are so nostalgic, bringing me back to my childhood and wonderful walks through fields and gardens. There is something about the fragrance from a flower, it's like a time machine has been switched on and has taken you back to your childhood. The Variety of Double Fragrant Narcissus this year are amazing

Double narcissus have extra petals present, or have a double trumpet, and sometimes both. This double effect makes a very interesting flower that will add a special touch to any garden or landscape. Often Double narcissus have more than one flower per stem and the following varieties have a wonderful fragrance

Narcissus Rose Of May: Delight your senses with this compact, late-blooming daffodil. This distinctively different variety produces fully double whorls of ivory white petals that resemble gardenias, and exude a most delicious fragrance

Narcissus Obadam :The large, Gardenia-like blooms of this highly fragrant daffodil make a show-stopping and stylish addition to the spring garden! The fully double, clear white blooms of Narcissus 'Obadam' are produced in mid to late spring, looking superb in contemporary containers or planted in bold drifts through borders. These scented narcissus flowers are also excellent for cutting

Narcissus Pipers End : This small cupped pure white variety is a valuable addition to our range. Pipers End flowers in May and has a distinctive sweet scent

Narcissus Rip Van winkle:

An Extraordinary, Yet Beautiful Dwarf Daffodil with Highly Cut-petals like a homemade child's star. Its one of my all time favourites.

Margaret's Tip of the Week:

It's a great idea to plant your bulbs in a plastic pot (recycle some) and then plunge them in the ground. When flowering is over and you have got all of the please that these plants have to offer, lift the whole pot out of the ground and hide it somewhere in your garden, so that you won't have to look at the dead foliage of the daffodil.
