'Tete-a-tete' is one of the most popular dwarf daffodils. Standing at only 15cm (6in) high, its small size makes it ideal for planting in patio containers or at the front of the border. The deep golden yellow flowers appear in early spring, with each stem bearing up to 3 blooms. Plant the bulbs in early autumn, at one and half times their own depth. Alternatively buy potted plants in spring for instant colour. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
