Daffodils (or Narcissus) are associated with one of the most famous stories in the industry. Narcissus, the attractive Greek was known for breaking hearts, much to the dismay of the ladies. They took revenge and called upon the God, Nemesis. The God seduced Narcissus to a pond and attracted Narcissus to a pool where he saw his own reflection in the water and feel deeply in love with it. Unable to leave the allure of his own reflection in the pool, Narcissus lost his will to live and committed suicide. This is where the term narcissism arose, a fixation with oneself and one’s physical appearance or public perception.

The flower holds different meanings and symbolism. From selfishness and vanity to new starts, respect and good fortune. It is grown not just for the beauty, but for medicinal purposes, for example, there is a substance known as Galantamine found in the bulbs which are used for Alzheimer’s patients.
To care for your Daffodils, you will need to cut them at the base of the stem and store in a bucket of water and store in a cool, dry environment. If you are looking to combine the daffodils with other flowers in a bouquet, you will need to condition the blooms in a separate bucket first for a few hours. This is because Daffodils can damage other flowers due to a substance (sap) released from the stems.
