Both Graham Phillips and I are cut flower market growers and are always keen to market daffs that are a little different or out of season in relation to what is currently available.  The market is bursting with yellow trumpets this week but pinks, all whites and doubles are still in short supply.  Both Graham and I are keen to breed early whites and doubles. It is quite important that as they open from bud, the buyer can see that they are a clean all white, showing little or no yellow or primrose in the cup.  Here are two nice whites from Graham.

With the addition of the just posted ,splendid John Hunter all whites bred from a Canisp line , we are now getting a useful pool of good flowers to work with.
