Later flowering heritage daffodils

We planted a selection of these heritage daffodils last autumn, in a shady area of the Garden to allow them to increase undisturbed. The previous blog on heritage daffodils illustrated a few of the earlier flowering ones.

Here is a few photos of the later flowering historic daffodils, which were planted out in a raised bed in this 17th/18th Century formal Walled Garden.

Spring daffodil display

The Gardens currently has an excellent display of daffodils, including Narcissus Trena at the front of our main herbaceous border (My Lady's Border).  We also have a good flowering of daffodils on the North Wall Border including Narcissus Wheal Coates and Narcissus Andrew's Choice (illustrated below)

A new addition to our daffodil collection this season has been the introduction of heritage daffodils.  These have been sourced from various specialist supplies, with the aim of linking in with our project to grow on period correct plants in the Garden.  Our historic daffodils currently in flower include Narcissus Lady Margaret Boscawen, Narcissus Colleen Bawn, and Narcissus Barri Conspicuus, (which is illustrated below). A full list of our daffodils will be available to visitors to our Garden.
