Q Which are best for cutting? LYNDA LEWIS, FRINTON, ESSEX
A Plan carefully and you could be cutting daffodils for more than two months. Cyclamineus types ‘Rapture’ and ‘February Gold’ are among the earliest. Some of the older, cheaper kinds such as ‘Fortune’ and ‘Ice Follies’ are long-stemmed and vigorous, or you could try ‘St Keverne’ or ‘Arkle’ with superior yellow trumpets. Multiheaded Poetaz types ‘Falconnet’, ‘Geranium’ (pictured) and ‘Matador’ are fragrant and among the last to bloom.
