“The Heritage Daffodil Identification by Bartley Boyle was a great success last year, so we decided to run it again. We discovered at least 4 old heritage daffodils in the area that we did not knew existed and it was a great way of getting people involved and interested.
So please highlight to people to bring along any old daffodil that might be in their granny’s garden or hidden in some old garden that they might know off. This is a great way of collecting data on heritage plants in the area.”
