10 'Pheasant's Eye' Narcissus Bulbs

The narcissus has been beloved for millennia as a herald for new life, showing us that winter is soon to give way to the vibrancy of spring. These bulbs allow you to experience the loveliness of the Pheasant's Eye narcissus, which proudly displays snowy-white petals that emphasise the colourful vivacity of its reddy-orange cup. The Pheasant's Eye also has a wonderfully sweet fragrance and has received the Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.

Narcissi look best when planted informally and are ideal for enriching rock gardens, containers and terraces. They appreciate humus-rich soil that is well-drained while still remaining moist, so avoid particularly dry areas such as under conifer trees. Direct sun will be appreciated, although partial shade is also fine. Allow foliage to die naturally as early removal can result in the bulb not flowering in the following year.

Planting Tip

Add organic fertiliser when planting for larger blooms in spring
Optional Extras Selected items will be included with your purchase

Our bulbs are all harvested at just the right time to ensure they are of the best quality and size. With careful handling and specialised packaging, we can assure you that your bulbs will arrive in perfect condition.

Ensure that you plant at the depth specified above. If planted too deep the bulb may rot and the shoot will emerge late, while if it's too shallow it will emerge unevenly and produce spindly growth.

Once the shoot emerges, watering thoroughly and regularly will help encourage growth.

Fertiliser isn't necessary, but will help with blooms. Simply apply slow release fertiliser when planting in autumn, or alternatively apply liquid fertiliser when the growing season starts in early spring.
