Rod's Garden Home

For the past 30 years, Wood House, near Epping Forest, UK, has been home to Sir Rod Stewart.

Jonquils
Part of the same family, jonquils (Narcissus jonquilla) are wonderfully fragrant and have a wide climatic tolerance that makes them easy to grow in In flower shape and hue, they are very similar to daffodil bulbs and most gardeners simply don't differentiate.

Jonquils only grow in yellow hues while daffodils may be found in white, peach, pink, and a variety of other colours.

Sun requirement: Full to partial shade only
Bloom time: Spring
Planting tips: Plant jonquils twice as deep as the width of the bulb in either pots or drifts in the garden.
