Product Details

Product Details

We call our premium Daffodil mix The Works because that's what it is. It's a mixture of 30 top-quality varieties blended to provide the widest possible range of color, form, and bloom time. Among the assortment are colorful Trumpets, hardy Large-cups, ruffled Split-cups, as well as dainty and fragrant Tazettas and Cyclamineus varieties. Planted at the edge of a woodland or along a path, The Works is ideal for naturalizing. In smaller yards, the bulbs can be sprinkled throughout garden beds and planted alongside the mailbox and front door. They settle in quickly, bloom beautifully their first year, and then increase their numbers in the kind of sunny, well-drained site they like. This mix provides a permanent display that is immune to pests and the weather, and will never be touched by deer. Best of all, these large bulbs are easy to grow and require little maintenance. The Works is our best-selling Daffodil collection, with dozens of glowing reviews from customers who keep coming back for more.

While the mixture changes from year to year to take advantage of the market, it always represents the best that this glorious genus has to offer. Our large bulbs produce more flowers with fewer misses their first year, then go busily about self-propagating in a site they like, actually adding to the show in future years. All they require is reasonable drainage and at least 6 hours of sun a day in spring to settle in as cheerful and permanent neighbors. Of course, Daffodils are also immune to pests and predators, including voles and deer. They ALWAYS bloom. 100 bulbs cover 20 sq ft.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

Beautiful Mix for the Northeast

We planted The Works (North Mix) in Fall of 2021. The blooms this Spring were phenomenal! We planted 100 bulbs - all were perfect quality upon arrival and planting. The mix of colors and types in The Works were well balanced. I will be be purchasing another 100 again this year. White Flower Farm came highly recommended from my father-in-law who has purchased their bulbs for years.

Better every year

We planted one set of 100 bulbs about 20 years ago in front of our house in a partly shaded area. We have been pleased every year since with the number of varieties and the length of bloom time. I highly recommend this mix for carefree planting. We now have alliums and a few day lilies inter-planted with them so we don’t have to pull the daffodil foliage.

No variety - very disappointed

I was most disappointed in that I could find very little variety in the 200 bulbs which you sent. I scanned my daffodil area and could only find about 15 white ones out of 200!! It said there were up to 30 varieties - well they all looked like that same yellow ones to me.

Best Money Spent - Ever!

Truly, the money spent on this collection was the best investment ever! Spring in Colorado can be depressing, with snow going into April, so I needed an early burst of spring and color to keep my spirits up. This package has delivered that! The variety of plants is stunning and I've been able to cut several bouquets to bring indoors during snowy days while still having an abundance of blooms outside. And since it's been a rolling bloom, I've had color for probably a month now. Absolutely loving it and highly recommend!

Success!

I planted this collection (200 bulbs) in woodlands, deep in leaf mulch, drifting them through and across a 200' x 50' area. The clumps of 5s and 7s responded admirably. After a very hard winter, nearly all of the bulbs came up and flowered, creating a welcome display in early spring, with several different varieties. I'll add another collection this fall, and expect to have an abundant display again, based on my first season success.

Latin Name Pronunciation: nar-sis'-us

Bulb size: 12-16 cm; miniature varieties 8-12 cm

Harbingers of a new season, these spring-flowering bulbs light up the landscape. Glorious gold, lemon-yellow, and snowy white blooms are often accented with contrasting trumpets or centers and vary in height from two inches to two feet with flowers in elegant proportion. Easily grown, the majority of these bulbs are very tolerant of cold winters. Paperwhite Narcissus are hardy only to Zone 8, but are forced indoors in pots in cold climates during the winter months for their fragrant blooms. Many of the hardy varieties can also be successfully forced indoors. Many Daffodils can be grown throughout the South, except in regions that are frost-free, since cold temperatures are necessary for the formation of the flower buds.

Color: Narcissus color can vary based on the age of the flowers as well as environmental conditions, such as temperature and light intensity.

Light/Watering: While Daffodils prefer full sun they will usually tolerate half-day shade, especially Cyclamineus hybrids such as 'Jack Snipe' and the Poeticus variety 'Actaea'. Those cultivars with orange, red, or pink cups generally retain deeper color when planted in a location that receives protection from the hot afternoon sun. Watering during the fall is essential for good root growth before the ground freezes in cold regions. Try not to water excessively in the summer months when bulbs are dormant.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Daffodil bulbs will not survive in soils that are wet, especially during the winter. Avoid low-lying areas where water gathers or where the snow is late to melt in spring. Plant each bulb at a depth 3 times the height of the bulb. Daffodil bulbs appreciate deep planting in light soil. If your soil is heavy, try planting less deeply than we recommend, making up the difference with a layer of mulch on top. Plant larger or bedding-size bulbs 5–6″ apart (4–5 bulbs per sq ft), smaller or landscape-size bulbs 3–4″ apart (5 bulbs per sq. ft.), and the miniatures 3–4″ apart (5 bulbs per sq ft). When planting, keep in mind that the blooms tend to face the prevailing direction of the sun; in a border viewed from the north, they will look away from you. Do not separate bulbs that are attached at the base; the smaller bulb (known as an off-set or a "daughter" bulb) should not be detached from the parent bulb before planting. The best time to fertilize is in the autumn, when the bulbs are sending out new roots. To make clumps of Daffodils easy to find, plant a few Grape Hyacinths (Muscari) amongst them; the Grape Hyacinths send up a bit of leaf growth in the fall. The next best time to fertilize is in early spring, just as the Daffodil foliage begins to push through the soil. We recommend using a granular slow-release fertilizer formulated especially for bulbs.

Naturalizing with Daffodils: In naturalizing with Daffodils, begin with the idea that they look best in groups of individual varieties. Mother Nature does it this way, and she is a reliable guide. Plant your bulbs in sweeps or drifts, or scatter them in clumps or clusters. Scatter Daffodil fertilizer over the top of the soil after planting, with repeat applications every fall. Once bloom is complete, allow the leaves to remain in place until they yellow (8-10 weeks). Do not cut back or mow the foliage. This ensures the following year’s display, and they'll reward you with larger clumps each year.

Pests/Diseases: Few if any pests bother Daffodils. The bulbs and foliage are poisonous to most insects and animals, including deer and voles. If you see vertical streaks in the Daffodil leaves, dig up the bulb and put it in the trash as it may be infected with a virus. Watch any surrounding Daffodils for symptoms as the virus is spread by contact.

Companions: Narcissus reach dormancy 6 to 12 weeks after flowering depending on weather and variety. The period between the end of flowering and the withering of the foliage is crucial to the future vigor of the plant. If you cut, fold, or braid the leaves before they have yellowed and collapsed, you may prevent the bulb from storing the energy required to bloom the following year. You can hide curing foliage by interplanting bulbs with leafy perennials such as Hostas, Daylilies, and Ferns or with annuals or ground covers like Brunnera or Vinca. If you plant the bulbs in a lawn, do not mow the grass until the bulb foliage begins to yellow. Daffodils do well under deciduous trees, but avoid planting under evergreens and in areas where large roots are close to the surface.

Dividing/Transplanting: The best time to move or divide bulbs is when their foliage has withered, signaling the end of active growth. Lift them with a digging fork or a spade, taking care to avoid injuring the bulbs, and replant them immediately at the same depth and about three times their diameter apart. Water well.

End of Season Care: Remove dried up foliage after it has died down completely. A mulch of evergreen boughs after the ground freezes may help plants stay dormant if warm periods occur during the winter months.

Calendar of Care

Early Spring: Fertilize now if you missed the fall opportunity.

Late Spring: Water if the season has been dry, and deadhead as needed. Watch for vertical lines in the foliage and remove and destroy any bulbs showing signs of viral infection.

Summer: Try not to overwater in areas where Daffodils are planted. Allow foliage to cure naturally without intervention.

Fall: Use a granular slow-release fertilizer to feed Daffodil bulbs now. Gently lift and divide clumps of bulbs now. Plant new bulbs and include a few Grape Hyacinths to mark the planting spot. Remove dead foliage, and mulch with evergreen boughs after the ground has frozen. Water bulb plantings thoroughly through the fall if rain is scarce.
