Double daffodils offer something a little more unusual with their pompom-like flowers. This one has big flowers (up to 10cm across) so it is very showy, and it has a lovely soft colouring - with an outer band of creamy lemon, surrounding a frilly darker yellow centre, which pales to ivory-white as the flowers age. It's impressive in the border and the vase.
- Garden care: Plant 10-15cm (4-6in) deep from late summer to early autumn. After flowering feed with a balanced fertiliser, dead-head and allow the leaves to die back naturally before removing them.
