Hi all,
Our first daffodil seedling, No. 25/95G, for 2012 is in flower at present in our open ground beds.  It came into flower about ten days ago.  The breeding is {(Cascade x [Lingering Light x Gisela]) x Audubon} x Emerald Sea. It is quite a well formed very early white daffodil.  A sister seedling to Autumn Charm. A pity I cannot send it to the Northern Hemisphere shows that are on at present.  It could do quite well.
Our ground was rotavated yesterday and is now ready for this years planting.  We hope to start in the next day or so.
