On behalf of the daffodil growers of New Zealand I would like to congratulate Dr John Reed of Niles, Michigan on being this years recipient of the Peter Barr Cup presented by the RHS.

Johns varieties are only just starting to be grown in New Zealand and have had several Premier Bloom awards in recent years. There are a number being grown here that should be on the show benches shortly.

Congratulations John, a thoroughly deserved award.

Robin Hill

Vice President – National Daffodil Society of New Zealand.

    John has worked long to improve daffodils through his breeding program. As well, he has helped other hybridizers by giving them his seedlings that he hoped contained traits they needed. This significant award is one he deserved but never sought. Congratulations, John!
