A “tradition” of the Kyneton Daffodil Show, a “must-see” for those with a hunger for innovative breeding was a display, usually of five vases of Fred Silcock’s seedlings.

Here are five vases from those shows, for a wider audience to share.

    Thanks so much Wayne for giving us a glimpse of the many color codes and beautiful daffodils Fred was working with.
