Daffodil Heamoor, YELLOW double FLOWERS
A first-class Daffodil, seldom I have seen such a long blooming Daffodil. Heamoor is, among the larger Daffodils, one of the first to open her always sunny flowers, quite often the calendar doesn’t even show April. Once she is blooming it looks like she never wants to stop, what a long-lasting Daffodil. An English friend and grower of Daffodils for cut flowers in Cornwall recommended I should grow this variety. For him also the Heamoor was the ideal Daffodil, long, straight and sturdy stems for creating perfect bunches. But, above all, it is her long blooming time, in the vase as well as in the garden. what makes her exceptional. I bought some bulbs from him and they turned out to grow well.

You can plant daffodils in rows, in groups (3 and 5 are good numbers), or individually. If you’re planting a lot of bulbs in a row along the edge of a flowerbed, it’s easier to dig a trench or wide hole in which to plant. If you’re planting groups here and there in a flowerbed or in the lawn, you’ll want to plant them individually. However many you’re planting, bulbs should be placed 4 to 6 inches apart.
Plant each daffodil bulb so the pointy end, or tip, is facing up. Dig the hole or trench so that when the bulb is placed inside, the tip is 2 inches deeper than the bulb is tall. So, for example, a 2-inch long bulb should be planted 4 inches deep (measuring from the bottom of the bulb), while a 3-inch long bulb should be planted 5 inches deep. Water well after planting then cover the soil with a layer of mulch for both a tidy look and to help the soil retain moisture longer.
LIGHT PREFERENCE:Sun/Part Shade Sun or partial sun. Narcissus tolerate part shade, especially during hot weather. Plants require at least 5–6 hours of sun per day at the time of bloom.
PLANT HEIGHT:Varies by variety.
PLANT SPACING:1–6" apart. Wider spacing allows room for bulbs to multiply. Do not break apart bulb clumps that have smaller bulbs attached at the base. Plant them as an intact cluster.
HARDINESS ZONES:See individual varieties.
VASE LIFE:4–6 days. The sap of daffodils can be toxic to other types of flowers. If you plan to use them in a mixed arrangement, allow the daffodils to sit in their own water for 12–24 hours before combining them with other flowers.
STORAGE TEMPERATURE:32-35°F (0-2°C) optimal storage temperature.
HARVEST:To get a long stem and reduce the amount of sap released, harvest by reaching to the base of the stem and pulling gently. Avoid taking leaves when harvesting flowers; the plants need the leaves to manufacture energy for next year's blooms. Continue to irrigate plants even after the bloom period to ensure development of the bulbs for next year's flowers. Deadhead any blooms you do not harvest. Wait until the plant leaves have turned brown before mowing over.
