February Gold

Now that we are in April the February Gold daffodills are flowering. These are short neat daffodills with a clear bright colour and are clearly going to be a couple of weeks ahead of the other daffs in the field (the only others in flower are next to the house wall - everything is about 3 weeks later than last year).
I shall probably move the February Gold bulbs after they have flowered as they are obviously going to bloom at a time when I am not selling but too late to be useful for early displays - when I ordered them I envisaged them in large shallow planters with snowdrops, iris reticulata and forced pussy willow branches. I shall perhaps move them to the verges where they will look cheery but not too blowsy.
