Due to pre existing Quarantine laws we cannot send any bulbs to Western Australia and Tasmania. You may need to find bulb suppliers in your areas. Sorry we cant help you

We have been growing these for years in our Dural gardens and they are so easy to keep happy. They naturalise beautifully in grass and sprout up early in the season. 

They have a lovely fragrance and they make great cut flowers for indoors too. You could even sell them on your roadside as cut flowers and help pay for your gardening hobby! 
A very popular cluster daffodil. Up to 25 creamy white blooms the size of a 10c piece on a 40cm stem, gives the appearance of a snow ball. Highly fragrant. Strong grower. Please note we are offering huge, premium size bulbs this season. 
Hardy and bright, nothing heralds the start to spring like Daffodils. Their bold, long lasting blooms emerge in Mid Winter (Melbourne) through to early spring and make for exceptional cut flowers. 

Daffodils need a full sun position, but can tolerate some dappled light. Prepare your beds to a depth of 20cm, making sure the soil is light and fluffy. Plant the bulbs with the 'fat' end down at a depth of 6cm. Allow 10cm between each bulb, however a less full result can be achieved if you choose to plant further apart. 

If growing your Daffodils in a pot, select a high quality potting mix that is free draining. Some gravel in the base of the pot will assist with any drainage issues. Ensure the bulb is well fed and watered right up until dormancy.

Daffodils DO NOT require refrigeration, and are happy to naturalise in the ground for many years. Feed your bulbs as they come into bloom, and make sure you leave the foliage to fully die down - this feeds and grows NEXT years flower. 

Happy Gardening!

Planting timeLate Summer to Autumn 
Height: 30-45cm tall.
Depth & spacing: 12-15cm apart. 15-20cm deep


Aspect
Full-sun to part-shade.

Soil
Well drained. But they are tough as nails. 

Watering
Start watering when growth appears above ground and keep soil slightly moist until foliage dies off after flowering. Once the bulb has disappeared below ground it is in its dormant state and doesn't need much water then. Over-watering will cause them to rot so you don't want that. 

Fertilising 
Use a  complete liquid fertiliser like Thrive once you see it sprouting above ground and continue to give it a feed every 2 weeks till the foliage has completely died off. 
Alternatively you can apply a granular bulb fertiliser when you see them sprouting above ground. Be sure to water it in. 
 

Flowering time
From late Winter until mid Spring (depending on the variety). 

After flowering care
If you are in a cold area with frosts you can leave the Tulips in the ground till next year. But if your area is a bit wamer, you can going to need to dig the bulbs up once they have totally died back. Brush off all the dirt and remove the shivelled stems and store them in a dark dry cupboard. 
As you approach Autumn next year, transfer them to the fridge crisper for 6-8 weeks so that they get their chill treatment which will trigger them to flower again when you plant them. 

Climates
Subtropical to cool.
