Our nursery has many daffodils that have been continually dug and replanted since the 19th century. These older cultivars show a hybridiser's hand that is straightforward, friendly and elegant in style. We try to offer at least 50% historics.
Many of the old boys are identifiable by their “star shaped” flowers and smaller cups. Once you have some you will be looking out of the corner of your eye for that sharp shape in every roadside ditch and open field you pass in the spring.
