I have grown this Narcissus for over 40 years. The original bulbs where given to me by my Grand Mother. They are a very old type. Have a very strong scent. They usually start to bloom in December/January.

They are a no care plant. About every 10 years or so I dig them up and thin them out. I do not feed them or water them. I have around 130+ right now.

I do not know if it makes any different but I do not replant them as deep as the rule for bulbs say. They seem very happy being planted just below the surface.We have a layer of hard clay about 1 foot down that will hold in water.
