Stan comments on the early Spring

Whilst it has been an  unusually early season so far, TV and newspaper reports of  daffodils  that should flower at Easter  being  several months early  are exaggerated as a few  types always do flower in January. Rijnveld’s Early Sensation  photographed  at RHS Wisley just  over a week ago is one. Early daffodils in Wisley 2016This is an old variety classed as Div. 1 i.e. trumpet.

It is said  to be a parent of another very early hybrid Spring Dawn Spring Dawn December 4th 2011which is Div. 2 large cupped and  bicoloured.

 

There are other  very early daffodils such as the  Paperwhites –tazetta group – but these are not hardy in Scotland though other, later tazettas are.
