The early date of the second weekend in March didn’t faze Ivor Clarke of Alveston, South Gloucestershire.
All his entries at the RHS Daffodil competition at Rosemoor won first prizes and an immaculately grown and presented set of six blooms, Ombersley 1Y-Y and Honeybourne 2W-Y, Silent Valley 1W-W and Cameo Joy 2Y-R, with Arleston 2Y-Y and Queens Guard 1|W-Y deservedly won him the Crystal trophy.
The Best Bloom however eluded him. This was a 2W-W seedling F41 exhibited by Carlos van de Veek
Once again Brian Duncan from Northern Ireland displayed an amazing range of miniature hybrids and species. He was in close competition in many classes with Anne Wright from Yorkshire who had some lovely blooms and some particularly eye catching pots.
