Description of Narcissus Ziva 'Paperwhite' (Pack of 10 Bulbs) Narcissi

A tender variety that will show itself earlier than most narcissus, Narcissus Ziva 'Paperwhite', is also perfect for growing indoors and will produce a sweet scent that is to die for! 
Paperwhites will produce multiple flowers per stem and are not just about being pure white with a gorgeous fragrance, they are also so easy to grow and will burst into action as soon as they are planted for indoors. Plant them indoors this autumn for the flowering during the festive season. Or plant them outside in your borders or pots for an early display of narcissus.

Planting and growing instructions: Buy Daffodil bulbs | Narcissus Ziva 'Paperwhites' | Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

  • Find a location with well-drained soil. Narcissus will not thrive in water-logged areas.
  • Narcissus like to receive full sun for most of the day.
  • If planting in the garden, plant the bulbs with their pointed tops 4-7" below the soil surface with smaller bulbs placed more shallowly than larger ones. Allow 4 to 5 bulbs per square foot.
  • If planting in pots, find a large container and fill it with good-quality, well-drained multi-purpose compost. Ensure there is adequate draining holes.
  • Plant in the Autumn, September through November.
  • After planting, water the Narcissus well, gently soaking the soil to settle it around the bulbs.
  • Daffodils will flower early Spring.

  • After flowering has finished for the season leave the foliage in place; don't cut it off. The leaves will gather sunlight, create food through photosynthesis and strengthen the bulbs for the future.
  • Water as needed during active growth periods.
  • By mid summer the leaves may yellow and die back. Foliage may be removed at this point.
