Planting Daffodils For A Succession Of Sustainable Spring Cut Flowers

Summary

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.

About

A 19th century historic wharf and Cheshire canalside cutting garden is the inspiration for our wild garden style ethos. I root my floral design in every precious fleeting seasonal moment, growing and creating only ever with local seasonal scented British flowers.

If sustainability matters to you, if you care that floral creations are as kind to the environment as they are beautiful, then I am a kindred spirit.

We share our artisan florals in our live online virtual flower classes, and with our flowers, create bouquets and undertake a few intimate Cheshire weddings a year.

Online Flower Class Testimonial

The wreath class on Sunday was excellent. It was fascinating to watch your technique step by step, to hear you explain so carefully how passionate you are about sustainability, and always so cheerfully and with such an appreciation for nature.
