Hi  Daffnetters ,
As  we  are  moving  from  summer  into  autumn,  most  daff  groups  are  in  sales  mode ; raising  funds
and  trying  to  entice  new  members  to  our  groups .
The  Central  Daffodil  Group  had  a  sales  table  at  the  Central  Dahlia  Group  late  dahlia  show  in
Feilding  , Manawatu .This  midsized  semi – rural  town  has  won  the  award  for  N Z  best  garden  town
on  six  or seven  occassions and  has  an  enthusiastic , garden  aware  population ..
We  set  up  about  midday  and  sales  were  very  steady  until we  ajourned  for  a  meeting mid  afternoon.
It  was  also  pleasing  to  get  good  feedback  on  the  bulbs  sold  last  year .
The  super  salesman  is  Wilf  Hall.
The  most popular  $5  dollar  bag  —  —  Erlicheer  .
We  advertise  its  fragrance  —  its  well  known  by  most  gardeners  and we  sold out  of Cheer  quite  quickly.
Other  growers  with  regular  sales  stalls  report  the similar  results ..
Over-all  an  enjoyable  and  profitable  afternoon .
Cheers  John .
