Is everyone finding Narcissus blooming too early this year? Looking at last year's photos mine are up to 17 days early compared to last year. March 12th '06 was a Sunday so I may have been off to take the photos.

The following are out now
Trena 17th March
Tete-a-tete 12th March
lost label 12th March
Fairy Gold 8th March
Gipsy Queen March
Jim Lad March 12th

Here are a few from last weekend

cyclamineous
ex Primrose Warburg
longispathus
Snipe or is it Mitzy? I favour the former as none are fading to white

Too many snowdrops and Narcissus in the garden need dividing. It amazing Snipe/Mitzy can keep going. I see one flower that's fading. It was for sale at 15 a bulb butpallidiflorus was 2.50 each

Quite a lot of problems Mark!

Just recovering from all the galanthus outings and have discovered this site.  Thanks to all contributors, it is fascinating with some wonderful photographs. I agree with the last post, I need to collect more small narcissus.  Both Jim Lad and Sidora (received from Anne last year) are in flower for me, only hope I can look after them well.

From my experience Jim will do better under cover. Sidora is OK outside - so far ..

I meant to add seeing these miniatures is easy but sourcing them is the problem. Those who have them dont part with them. I have a feeling they are being bulked and awaiting greater interest to command higher prices.

Some are easy to come by like
Gipsy Queen
minor
nanus
Little Beauty
WP Milner
Queen Annes Double
Cedric Morris
Lilliput
Minicycla
Elka

Thanks Mark. They are both in cold greenhouse at the moment, guess I would like to build them up before I risk putting them outside.

Last night's gales decimated the Narcissus in my garden, only Tete a Tete escaped relatively unharmed. :'( :'(
