Q Which are best for cut­ting? LYNDA LEWIS, FRINTON, ES­SEX

Garden Answers (UK) - - Problems Solved -

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.
