Dear Jaydeeager,

My name is Caroline Thomson I am a direct descendent of William Backhouse
the daffodil breeder, we are gathering together the remaining varieties of
Backhouse Daffodils into a Heritage Museum Collection, hopefully this will
prove to be a useful resource in the future for anyone interested in
daffodils and bring pleasure to those who tend it.

Our web site is www.rofsie-estate.com there is a list of all!! the bulbs we
are still looking for. I am asking for help at the moment from everyone
involved in the world of daffodils to try and gather these fast disappearing
varieties together, any help you could give we would be so grateful for.
Sharron MacDonald the daffodil Registrar kindly gave me your email and
suggested you may be able to help.

At the moment I am seeking National Heritage status as this will highlight
our profile and will hopefully alert more people to what we are trying to
do. In order to achieve this status we need 75% of anything listed in the
RHS Plantfinder. We are currently looking for CJ Backhouse and Gloria Mundi
in order to achieve this. The only Scottish nursery Croft 16 who stock them
tell me their order book for these varieties is already full for the next
two years.

Can you help?

Kind Regards,

Caroline (Thomson)
