Great bulbs

The RHS is advising people to look for bulbs with an Award of Garden Merit (AGM). The RHS has awarded the AGM to over 200 daffodil varieties which therefore carry a stamp of good quality.
Andrew McSeveney, RHS Trials Manager, told The Landscaper: “landscape contractors who are looking for great daffodils to grow should really consider those with AGM status. The daffodil experts on the Daffodil and Tulip plant committee have spent a lot of time comparing different varieties and therefore they can be assured that those with AGM after their name are ones that are good for all occasions”
The RHS Advisory Service suggests that for strong and vigorous growth bulbs should be planted before mid-September if possible. The plants will then spend the winter months developing roots before flowering from February to early May. By planting now they will have a strong rooting system which, in turn, will give healthier and longer-lasting flowers. Planting daffodils at different times throughout this period will allow for staggered flowering times and selecting different types of daffodils will extend the flowering season.
