Daffodil Tête à Tête is an heirloom daffodil dating to before 1949. These attractive, small daffodils will naturalise happily and provide years of colour in the early spring garden

Narcissus Tete a Tete is a modest little yellow trumpet flower, it's very pretty and performs very well. It’s a perfect miniature replica of large trumpet daffodils. Growing to 30-40cm tall and lightly scented. The bulb will produce 2-3 flowers per stem.

But this unassuming cyclamineus daffodil is a giant in the bulb world. The secret to its success is in its ability to come back year after year. 

During the 1950s the production of Tete a Tete exploded with industrial propagation techniques to become one of the biggest selling daffodils we’ve ever seen. Most garden centres will stock these as potted plants around Easter time. 

It is a faultless narcissus that will return reliably each year and spread by bulb division. After a few years it’s wise to divide clumps of bulbs and spread them out to maintain a good display. 

The flowering period is particularly long on a good year, from March into early April. They are happiest in the ground where water supply is well balanced and they have plenty of room to grow. However they are easy to grow in pots and containers. Once they have finished in containers they can be moved to the garden. 

Plant at any point in autumn or early winter. Water if the weather is particularly dry. However, they don’t require a lot of attention. Water more frequently in spring.

Once the flowers have finished let the foliage turn brown to help feed the new bulbs. They can be left in the ground for the following year. 

Because of the extended flowering period these are excellent flowers to pair with other bulbs. Muscari Armeniarcum or early flowering tulips such as Purple Prince or Stresa
