It is with great sadness that we hear of the death of Dr Peter Ramsay on July 20 2019. Peter was a Vice-President and Life Member of the National Daffodil Society of New Zealand and long standing Vice-President, friend and supporter of The Daffodil Society.
Peter and his wife Lesley were great ambassadors for the daffodil and made many friends as they attended shows and conventions around the world. Peter bred and raised over 100 daffodils many of them exquisite and much admired. Daffodil names with the Cameo prefix can be found in many prestigious award winning collections.
His contribution to the daffodil was recognised by the RHS in 2013 when he was awarded the Peter Barr cup. Daffodil friends were delighted that Peter and Lesley travelled to London to receive the award in person.
Our condolences to Lesley and their family.
