We have been growing these for years in our Dural gardens and they are so easy to keep happy. They naturalise beautifully in grass and sprout up early in the season. 

They have a lovely fragrance and they make great cut flowers for indoors too. You could even sell them on your roadside as cut flowers and help pay for your gardening hobby! 

Fabulous flowers that radiate the sweet fragrance of spring. Jonquil varieties are benevolent with their blooms, each stem is 'multi-headed' and packed with flowers. Also known as Jonquils or Jonquil type daffodils, Scented Daffodil flowers 'cluster' together along the stems, forming an impressive display. 
Plant your Scented Daffodil bulbs three times as deep as the bulb is high, with the pointy end up. The depth will protect them from heat and soil erosion, as well as providing strength for the stem. Space your Daffodils 10-20cm apart, more if you are leaving the bulbs in to naturalise.
Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem. Allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed. The Daffodil foliage gathers energy and nutrients at this time for next year’s blooms. Keep the plants relatively moist during this time, and add a little general purpose fertiliser. Daffodils like Potash and slow release fertiliser brands which are low in nitrogen (this means more flowers and less foliage).

Family: Amaryllidaceae 
Plant/bulb typeTrue bulbs 
Planting timeLate Summer to Autumn 
Height: 30-45cm tall.
Depth & spacing: 12-15cm apart. 15cm deep


Aspect
Full-sun to half-shade.

Soil
Well drained. Generally not fussy. 

Watering
Start watering when growth appears and keep soil slightly moist until foliage dies off after flowering. It is ideal to keep bulbs relatively dry whilst dormant. 

Fertilising
Top dress with a complete fertiliser each Autumn. Eg: Blood & Bone. For better performance, top dress annually again after flowering. 

Flowering time
From late Winter until mid Spring (depending on the variety). 

After flowering care
The bulbs can either be dug and stored or left to naturalise in the ground. The bulbs will need lifting and dividing (because they multiply & overcrowd themselves) every 3-5 years. Planting slightly deeper and further apart will delay the need to lift.

Climates
Subtropical to cool.
