Daffodil, Miniature 'Tete-a-Tete' 

The 'Tete-a-Tete' are miniature daffodil plants which are the first bloomers of the spring, right after the crocusses, around mid-April. They are even the first bloomers out of all the daffodils, opening up their flowers while the others are still growing. This beautiful little daffodil carries from 1 to 3 bright yellow, fragrant flowers per stem. It is valuable for edgings, rock gardens and pot culture. Flowers are great for cutting and this plant is suitable for growing indoors. 'Tete-a-Tete' is also resistant to deer.

Daffodils are ideal for naturalizing (they bloom every spring) and may be planted anywhere in your landscape, in sun or shade, along borders, in groups along a fence or around a tree or mailbox. Daffodils look best in mass plantings. They make good container plants and are delightful cut flowers.

Planting Instructions: The product should be planted immediately after received in the fall. In extremely warm climates, plant when the ground cools. You may plant earlier or later as long as the ground is not too warm or frozen. 1. Dig a hole 3-4 inches deep or 2 times the height of the bulb. 2. Set the bulbs firmly in place, with the pointed ends facing upward. 3. Cover the bulbs with soil and water thoroughly. Grow in informal groupings of 5 or more bulbs. Plant bulbs in fall 3-4 inches deep or 2 times the height of the bulb and 5" apart in well-drained soil with plenty of humus. Remove old flowers leaving as much stem and foliage as possible until they die down.
