Daffodil hybridisation has been taking place at a great pace for more than a century. Men of the cloth such as Rev. George Englehart were quite prolific in the late 1800s and early 1900s and many of the modern hybrids can be shown to be direct descendants of those early efforts. With about 30,000 named hybrids registered on the official register it seems fair to ask why we are still happily pressing ahead in this area. To put it in context, there have been many significant changes in the daffodil world.
At this stage of the year your daffodils will be in the ground and growing well. You wait expectantly for the flowers that spring will bring. The question now is how do you get the best flowers you can from your bulbs and, if you are going to pick (or show) them, when and how to pick them for best results.
