‘King Alfred’ and ‘Sydney’ sport the traditional golden trumpets that herald the new season but there are other daffodil shapes and colours to enjoy. Try pink-throated ‘Pink August’ and the cluster-white ‘Paperwhites’. Miniature daffodils look just like tiny suns. We like miniatures ‘Tete a tete’ and ‘Jetfire’ which are perfect for the windowsill. Buy bulbs in summer. To have them pop up, sunny as ever, year after year, you need to feed them three times. Feed with bulb food as they die down, and again when they resprout next winter.
