Narcissus ‘January’ (Trumpet Daffodil) has vibrant yellow star-like petals that are slightly inflexed, surrounding a large darker-coloured frilled trumpet.
These bulbs can be planted in a variety of places where they will grow successfully to bring colour to the garden in the depths of winter. They can be planted in containers and pots on a sunny patio or grown indoors. Alternatively, the bulbs can be planted directly into soil either in woodland, on lawns, or along pathways where they will naturalise effectively.
Plant the ‘January’ bulbs around 10cm deep and 10cm apart from one another, or in clumps to create the effect of clusters. Ensure these bulbs flower in a position where they are protected from strong winds.
