Do Narcissus 'Nylon' need chilling?

Many of us, I suspect, would rather have the narcissus bloom in December rather than in spring, and simply potting it up in the fall or leaving it in its pot is enough to do the trick.  The pot can be exposed to natural rainfall or kept dry with watering beginning in September.

My suggestion is that if the daffodil needs its growth to be slowed down,
to allow the buds to develop, I would plant it in cool weather before mid
winter, keep it somewhere dark until well rooted, and then put it in the
refrigerator for 10 weeks. It should then flower in the Spring.
