It’s not long now before the Plant Heritage Plant Fair at Helmingham Hall on Sunday, 16th September.
The free plant (for the first 800) is Narcissus bulbocodium subspecies conspicuus – a ‘Hoop Petticoat’ species Narcissus. It reliably produces up to 15 bright golden yellow flowers per bulb with fine grass-like foliage. It’s strong growing, increases rapidly and is good for naturalising in short, rough grassland or in an open garden situation. It flowers in mid April and grows to a height of 15cm or more.
