Double Trumpet Narcissus
April 16, 2010
There is one large clump of double trumpet narcissus in the gardens. It has spread from last year which is something I've been encouraging. The foliage of all spring bulbs should be left alone until it completely turns brown and can gently be pulled away. Protect the foliage from lawn mower damage if necessary to allow it to die back. This can easily be achieved using a tomato cage. Leaving the foliage feeds the bulbs aiding in the naturalization of the clumps. The folowing year the clumps will be bigger and showier. You will be glad you did this extra step!
