Wild Daffodil (Narcissus pseudonarcissus)
The Wild Daffodil, also known in times past as the Lent Lily, is more delicate and unassuming than many hybrids. It seems to have been in decline since the 1930s, although why no-one seems sure. Like the Common Bluebell, as a woodland plant they require shade in the summer. Daffodils don't seem to be much visited by honey bees, but are more usually pollinated by bumblebees. All parts of the daffodil are poisonous. Like all our native bulbs, our wild daffodils are lifted to order at a remote woodland nursery in Wales. Daffodils should be planted at 12 bulbs per square metre. We offer packages of 50, 100, 500 and 1000 wild daffodil bulbs, available from August to October.
