I've had these lovely little bulbous plants for several years, but I've never been able to grow them successfully. The problem was that I tried to grow them in the ground and inevitably their diminutive scale was lost in the bigger landscape and tiny flowers, so close to the ground, would be splashed with mud after rain. This summer I dug them up by mistake and I decided then and there that they should be potted up and grown on in the greenhouse. Only three bulbs survived this and only two bloomed, but what an exciting occasion this has been in the greenhouse in the middle of February.
The Narcissus a few days ago, just about to open.
This picture will give you some idea of the scale of these plants.
In the next day or two I will be sure to pollinate these flowers and hope to collect seed later in the Spring.
