Description
Dutch Master (King Alfred Improved) has been America's favorite daffodil for decades. (Read the King Alfred story below.) It's great for naturalizing, and creates the perfect early burst of classic color for any garden, wildflower meadow, or in fact, almost anyplace in your yard that doesn't need early mowing. Today, Dutch Master is literally the gold standard among daffodils, and by special arrangement with our importer, we make sure we always have them in good supply at great prices for our customers.

Imagine a field of fresh golden daffodils waving in the spring breeze. Remember the old movie, Dr. Zhivago? The spectacular vision of golden flowers carpeting the ground under spring-leaved trees. A drift of color up a hillside. A huge sweep of gold into the distance. As beautiful as the fantasy is, it couldn't be easier to create. And you only have to do it once.

Naturalizing Daffodils. Probably nothing in the gardening world is more foolproof and more rewarding than "naturalizing" daffodils. Because unlike most other garden flowers, these fantastic plants are super-easy to plant in fall, they don't care about soil, as long as it's well-drained, and they'll bloom beautifully for you with absolutely no work every spring after you plant them. Best of all, daffodils increase over the years, each bulb developing into a blooming clump. All you have to do is pick the spots. The one thing to remember is that you won't be able to mow that area until the tops die down. Everything else takes care of itself. In a new or established wildflower meadow, the wildflower plants grow up around the daffodils hiding the fading foliage, so there's no work to do. And if you're planting wildflower seed, what could be easier that to pop in the bulbs when you have the ground already turned?

OK, what's the best Dutch daffodil for naturalizing? Well, most daffodils naturalize just fine, but if you want the classic drift of golden blooms, here's the story.

The King Alfred Story The world's most famous daffodil is the tall, golden, large-cupped one named King Alfred. It was introduced in Holland in 1899, and was an instant success. So King Alfred is now over 100 years old. Over the years, improved versions of the "King" were developed and given other names which gradually replaced "King Alfred", except in one place--the US. The Dutch Bulb Authorities tell us that gardeners here are so in love with King Alfred that even when improvements were made, the growers in Holland simply applied the old name to their new products. So today, there are several King Alfreds marketed in the US, and some garden centers and nurseries still use just the original name. We prefer to explain the whole story. The main one of these improved King Alfreds is actually named Dutch Master, introduced in 1948. As the Dutch say, "it is better and stronger, a more vigorous look-alike. It makes bigger bulbs and throws more flowers than the original King Alfred". The Netherlands Bulb Information Center makes it very clear. If you're looking for King Alfred daffodils, look no further. This is it, with improvements you'll love.

I have received many bags of (50) Dutchmaster Daffodils over the past 3 years. Every bag has been a gem that keeps on giving. I like to plant them in clusters - the effect is overwhelming - neighbors stop to admire and so do I. The are uniform, hearty, robust and quite firm - not a flimsy flower. What a striking appearance. One thing I do before I plant each cluster is prepare a good bed with nice soil so there is good drainage and prosperous root growth. These beauties multiply from year to year. This is the best flower for us. We plan to add more clusters every year.

I bought these when they were on special at American Meadows. When the bags (I bought 2) arrived, I had to throw out 6-10 bulbs because they were covered in a grey mold and rotten. I decided to take a chance and plant the rest and they came up beautifully.

My opinion on this is you get what you pay for. Maybe if I hadn't waited until they were on special they would've been healthier.

            I wanted a daffodil with a large, bright yellow flower that would hold up to rain and cold. These daffodils deliver everything I want. I couldn't believe how long the blooms looked fresh compared to other daffodils I have, even after being beaten with heavy rain and high winds. I can't wait until next spring to see them again!

                      I am very disappointed with my orders from AM this year.
                      1. 1/3 of the 50 pk of daffs have bloom and am still waiting for the rest to poke out of the grown while bulbs from elsewhere are blooming left and right.
                      2. The daylilies are puny and it looks like I will need to wait a year before seeing any flowers.
                      3. The tulip bulbs looked sickly when they arrived. One has bloomed and it looks lackluster. The other ones dont look like they have much potential either.

                                    The entire neighborhood loved the flowers. We received so many compliments as people walked by the garden. The daffodils were brights blossoms welcoming spring for our house and those who passed by.

                                    Have ordered a few times from American Meadows and have been pleased and happy with my purchases each time. [...] the products I have received (usually bulbs) have been healthy and grow nicely in my SC heat. The last batch of gladiola bulbs seemed smaller than previous purchases though. I just planted them a couple of weeks ago as my previous plantings were coming up, so I'm waiting for them to bloom and will follow up with a report on them once they bust thru!

                                      I've been planting these bulbs in my yard each fall for several years now. The effect is stunning. The thing I love the best is that my hard work isn't dug up and eaten by the squirels and deer (apparently daffodil bulbs aren't as tasty as tulip bulbs). Great value too!

                                        I guess all 50 bloomed . . . I didn't count, but I know some devided by spring . . . I achieved what I wanted to achieve . . . I planted under varying light conditions, which staggered their bloom times . . . I probably can find places for another 50

                                          I used these in my front yard to add splashes of color for spring. They were absolutely fabulous. The color is such a brilliant yellow you just had to stop and look. I need to add more but for the first year it did what I was looking to do. These are the largest bulbs I have ever purchased. I did not find anything negative about these except that I did not buy and plant enough!

                                              these daffodils are easy and maintenance free. I used them in the woods, making holes with the shovel and placing several bulbs together. They were nice to see on the hillside this spring.
                                              I will buy this product again and keep adding to the woods.

                                                Found these bulbs far superior to nationally advertised expensive supplier's bulbs. Have now planted them in New England and the deep South.

                                                As indicated, the 10 bulbs I purchased and planted & fertilized according to instructions, all bloomed beautifully the first year. The second year there was lush green growth, but only a couple bloomed!

                                                  I have received many bags of (50) Dutchmaster Daffodils over the past 3 years. Every bag has been a gem that keeps on giving. I like to plant them in clusters - the effect is overwhelming - neighbors stop to admire and so do I. The are uniform, hearty, robust and quite firm - not a flimsy flower. What a striking appearance. One thing I do before I plant each cluster is prepare a good bed with nice soil so there is good drainage and prosperous root growth. These beauties multiply from year to year. This is the best flower for us. We plan to add more clusters every year.

                                                      What is a "Quality Bulb," and Why Does Bulb Quality Matter?

                                                      Flower bulbs come in a wide variety of sizes. It is important to get the largest, best quality bulbs you can find. Larger bulbs help to ensure success, producing larger and stronger plants with more flowers.

                                                      Several flower bulbs are part of the onion family, and because of this I like to use Onions as a representation of how important bulb size is. Which of the onions on your shelf go bad first? The smallest ones! Larger onions are more resilient, taking longer to dry out/rot and can withstand swings in temperature better. Flower bulbs are the same. Larger bulbs will withstand disease, draught, large amounts of moisture, and colder temperatures significantly better than the smaller ones.

                                                      Here at American Meadows we are committed to providing you with the highest quality bulbs. This means we do everything we can to source the largest bulbs possible. Below is a comparison of bulbs purchased from three different retail stores:

                                                      Each of the glass tubes contains 20 Dutch Master Daffodils. Starting from the left, the first tube is what is sold here at American Meadows, the middle tube was purchased at a local “Home Supply” box store, and the third is another online retailer. The difference is easily noticeable.

                                                      The next picture is the same comparison, but with Tulip Bulbs:

                                                      Again, our bulbs are quite a bit larger than other retailers.

                                                      Other things to be aware of when it comes to bulb quality is making sure they are firm and without signs of external damage or cracking. Do your best to avoid bulbs that are already growing and have shoots or freshly grown roots. This is difficult when purchasing online, but if you are ordering through a reputable company, they should be checking for these things regularly.

                                                      Next time you are looking to buy bulbs, think about how much time you put into planning and planting your garden and then anxiously waiting for your flowers to grow and bloom. Don’t be disappointed after all that effort by planting sub-par bulbs. Buy the largest, firmest, disease free bulbs you can afford, and you will have the best possible results.
