Daffs in Spain
« on: January 11, 2020, 12:53:36 PM »
Clare and I are hoping to get to Spain or Portugal for a week at the end of February / early March with a view to finding Narcissi.
Does anyone have suggestions as to 'hot spots' at that time?

Greentours regularly runs trip to Western Iberia to see the daffodils.  I went on the trip a few years ago.  Check out their 2012 tour report and also the tour itinerary for ideas where to go.   http://www.greentours.co.uk/Alpine-Garden-Society/Alpine-Garden-Society/

You could also look around and see if Naturtrek or any similar groups run tours to the area and see what you can glean from their website.
