The Royal Horticultural Society are carrying out a two year trial of daffodils at their garden in Wisley, Surrey.
It consists of twenty five bulbs each of thirty five different cultivars which are planted in blocks of five rows of five.
The first year of inspection has recently been completed, carried out on a weekly basis, in spite of the arduous winter and protracted spring weather, by a dedicated group of experienced growers and exhibitors.
A further assessment will be completed next year judged on an accumulated points system for their suitability for garden display with qualities such as flower production, plant health and weather resistance. Those considered of sufficient attributes will be
recommended to the Society’s Bulb Committee for consideration of an Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
