April 2023 Meeting: ‘Daffodil Hybridisation’ with Catherine Beale and The Michael Jefferson-Brown Competition. Monday 3rd April

Daffodils, daffodils everywhere! For many of us, the sight of daffodils brings great cheer and is a sign that winter is behind us. There are over 27,000 named cultivars on the International Daffodil Register which is maintained by the RHS, many of which look alike in form, shape and colour.

Catherine is a writer and historian and will tell us about the history and people involved in Daffodil hybridisation with emphasis on the Welsh Marches. It should be a very interesting evening.

The talk will start at 7.30pm. However, come along from 7pm to enjoy a hot drink and chat, the plant stall and raffle. Please bring along a bag for any plants you buy on the stall as we need to keep the floor of the village hall clean and free of compost.

Don’t forget that we are holding our annual Michael Jefferson-Brown competition and we’d love as many members to take part as possible. Let’s fill the hall with colour and scent! There are 2 classes.

  1. Pot or container of growing flowering bulbs, corms or tubers
  2. Vase or container of cut flowers grown from bulbs, corms or tubers

One entry per person per class; entries are judged on quality and presentation. The trophy is awarded for best overall exhibit.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday evening. You are welcome to bring a friend. Visitors are £5.
