Daffodil King Alfred Family planting activity
An opportunity to plant up 3 Daffodil King Alfred bulbs into a hairy pot that you can take home.
- Booking advisable
- Admission applies
This is the time of year to plant bulbs ready for spring. Daffodil King Alfred flowers each year beneath the apple trees in our orchard. During half term on specific days you can pop into the temporary potting area near the plant centre and plant up three of these bulbs in a hairy pot to take home and either place into a container, or dig a hole and drop the whole thing straight into the soil in the garden. Why not decorate your own plant label for them too?

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
