Planting Daffodils For A Succession Of Sustainable Spring Cut Flowers


Fierceblooms discusses planting daffodils, favourite varieties to grow and getting a succession of sustainable spring blooms for cut flowers.
In this video, I talk all about planting daffodils my favourite varieties to grow and what to do to achieve a succession of sustainable spring daffodils for cut flowers.

Autumn, or fall as they call it in North America, is a busy time of year for a cut flower garden. Alongside sowing hardy annuals and a general tidy up for winter, planting daffodil bulbs or narcissi is a major activity in our canalside cutting garden.

We plant 1000s each year and in this video, I recommend a few of my favourite daffodils which you can grow to make your own spring garden grown bouquets. I also share my 7 key points for ideal growing, planting and conditioning, as well and how to choose the optimum varieties for your floral designs.

Although daffodils are traditionally yellow, in this video, I share the very many other shapes and sizes, as well as softer colour palettes including pale lemons and whites that you may like to grow for your cut flower garden.


Fierceblooms is a environmentally sustainable floral business. Guarded by our ancient horse chestnut, our canalside cutting garden grows herbs and flowers while the wild edges hold magical medicinal plants here for much longer. Our hand crafted wild garden style wreaths and florals capture the seasonal moment and are created exclusively with British everlasting and fresh flowers.

Online Floral Classes

Always, our fierce focus in our unique online classes is to share how we create our signature "Wild garden Style" floral designs using local, scented, seasonal and sustainable flowers.

In fact. we only ever use local, garden grown (in our case) British flowers. Our desire is in every class to inspire you to create your own planet friendly, environmentally conscious floral designs using ingredients that reflect your season, your flora and your locale.

Rather than a constraint, we believe creating with your own seasonal garden grown flowers encourages you to make floral art that truly embodies your own unique floral signature.

2023 will be our 4th season of live online classes.  We look forward to continued conversations with sustainable floral enthusiasts from the far flung Scotland Highlands, down to Devon and Cornwall, across to Wales, and way beyond to North America, Australia, New Zealand.
