How to take care of Daffodil Tazetta Paperwhites x 10
Planting soil: well-drained soil is necessary, you can improve drainage by working sand into the soil. Plant the bulbs noses upwards at least three times their height deep. After planting: water the bulbs to encourage them to start rooting. When flower-heads have faded, it is best to remove them but resist the temptation to remove yellowing foliage early, it contains valuable nutrients that will be used to feed the bulbs for next year's crop of flowers. Leave it for at least six weeks after flowering - longer if possible. Divide clumps in late summer.
For planting indoors, plant bulbs 5cm (2in) deep in autumn and place in a cold frame outdoors until the roots become visible. Bring into the greenhouse and slowly increase the temperature. Water generously and feed with weak high potash fertiliser weekly. Bring into the house once flower buds appear. The bulbs are best discarded after flowering.
