The Narcissus in the greenhouse has finished blooming and now are setting seed in a quite corner. But in the garden, the blooming season is just starting, in the front I grow mostly N. cyclameneus hybrids, the first to bloom are 'Tete a Tete' and 'Topolino' and soon they will be joined by 'Jetfire' and by the jonquille 'Dicksissel'.
In the back garden I try to grow species Narcissus and have had some success with N. minor (pictured here with a Canadian Dollar coin) and N. bulbocodium, however I'm a bit disappointed that the N. cyclameneus which I've grown from seed hasn't flowered, perhaps it will later or maybe next year. I am not sure either about the N.pseudonarcissus I planted last Fall, of the 25 bulbs only 8 have appeared so far, but at least these are about to flower.
