News from Plant Heritage:
The Narcissus (Backhouse)  National Plant Collection has been awarded for the detailed research the Collection Holders have undertaken, from contributing to medical research to international field studies.

"Caroline Thomson has worked tirelessly over the last two decades researching and trialling the Backhouse daffodils which has resulted in discovering several lost varieties, her collection being accredited as a National Plant Collection in 2016, her family commended by the Houses of Parliament in 2017 for holding Scotlandís first Daffodil Festival and now being given scientific status. 

The Backhouses were renowned daffodil breeders and as a descendent, Caroline strives to continue the work of her forebears. The hybridising programme which her family began in the 1800s is reflected across the daffodil growing world today, and continues to thrive in Fife where her collection is held via a series of unique new demonstration beds that showcase ground-breaking cultivars and plant ancestries. Caroline is also working with the University of Cambridge contributing  to Narcissus medical research trials. She is a speaker at international conferences, and regularly publishes new research. "

From a derelict garden in Sweden I got this clone which I like - maybe an old variety?

Is any cultivar more elegant than this wild beauty? I have it as Narcissus varduliensis.

" Very interesting piece, recently published, about the citotaxonomy of Algerian narcissists and that confirms our way of understanding some parts of the gender that he refers to (e.g. , N. elegance, N. Pachybolbus)."

Death of Mike Salmon 2022

Very sad to learn the news today, from his old friend Kurt Vickery, of the death of retired nurseryman and narcissus expert, Mike Salmon.
A small comfort that Micheal was able to see the publication of his book in 2017. One of the great narcissus lovers gone.
