Jonquils flowers

Jonquils flowersJonquils are quite hardy, and may be grown in the open in the same manner as Hyacinths flowers. 5 or 6 bulbs in a five inch pot make a very pretty bouquet. They are excellent early flowers, and very odoriferous.

Plant Jonquils in autumn, placing sand round the bulbs. Best not disturbed too often. The leaves should not be cut off when withering, but allowed to die down. Jonquils bloom in April and their height is about one feet.
