Hi again Daffnetters,
  THe North  Island market growers are probbly through the mid season flush of Malvern City  1Y  Y, the most widely grown daff in  N Z
It,s a tall, strong all yellow that open well from bud and is currently flooding the markets .
It has been used extensively by many breedersafter early flowering seedlings.
John  Hunter has several good selections from  M C and sent me an unselected line from–
Kings Ransom  x  Malvern  City.  2  of 4 that I  am growing on,  both much smoother than M C but equally as tall.
I have seen many M  C sdlgs and it,s unusual to get rid of the big  bold ,flange and  roll.
