Nothing heralds spring quite like the sunny Narcissus, or daffodils as they are more commonly known. The bulbs with the green shoots also produce smooth stems with languid light brown heads, which open up in beautiful trumpet shaped flowers. They are an instant cheerful addition, which rapidly bloom indoors. And when they open, they are instantly everything spring has to offer. An ideal pot bulb to brighten up your home; quick and effectively, particularly when everything outside is still cold, wintry and grey. The buds open swiftly, and if it is very quiet at home you will even hear them rustle as they unfold. The plant was named after the vain hunter of Greek mythology. Narcissus was so in love with his own reflection in the water he eventually fell in and drowned. This is why daffodils are always looking slightly downward.
