Narcissus Jack the Lad bulbs produce a brightly coloured double daffodil which was specially grown by our suppliers to celebrate their 90th birthday. The daffodil bulbs grow to have mainly golden yellow petals which are interspersed with orange segments to give each flower a jaunty look. They look wonderful teamed with bright blue muscari in beds and borders or planted in containers.

Daffodils are classified into 10 divisions according to flower type and shape. Narcissus Jack the Lad is in Division 4, a group known as Double daffodils, with blooms characterised by their ruffled double petals.

Plant daffodil bulbs in September-October, Plant the bulbs around 2-3 times their depth, into free draining soil. Avoid planting bulbs in soil that gets waterlogged; on heavy soils add grit to the planting hole to prevent bulbs rotting. For a natural effect scatter the bulbs and plant them where they fall.

Planting daffodil bulbs in grass. If you are planting a lot of daffodils in grass it's easier to gently lift an L-shaped flap of turf and space the bulbs out underneath the flap before carefully replacing it and firming down gently. The daffodils will push through the turf in spring to give a very natural effect.

Planting daffodil bulbs in containers of bulb compost, or gritty free draining compost. Plant bulbs around 2-3 times their depth.
