How to Naturalise Bulbs in your Lawn
Drifts of dwarf daffodils look fabulous in a grassy area.
Choose early daffodils so that the lawn can be mown after they have flowered. For the best results choose one variety. Small species narcissi will spread more easily if allowed to set seed. Narcissus ‘Tete a Tete’ is a pretty, small, vigorous variety that will naturalise well in short grass.
Scatter the bulbs over the area to be planted. This will create a random planting pattern so that they look more natural when they come up.
Plant each bulb where it lands. Cut the lawn turf in the position, removing a section of turf. Excavate the soil beneath the turf and dig out a hole that is three times the depth of the bulb.
Loosen the soil in the bottom of the hole and mix in some Bulb Planting Compost. Position the bulb in the hole and refill with more Bulb Planting Compost.
Replace the turf over the hole and water well so that the grass can re-establish. The bulb will grow up through the turf in spring.
