Description

Daffodils I do not want to continue growing, normally end up on the trash pile. If I don’t think their good enough, I won’t sell them to our customers. However, for First of March I am making an exception. Despite the many compliments I that I have received about this daffodil, I am going to stop growing her. It a strong daffodil, but not a quick grower. She hardly produces any new bulbs. It is sad, because it certainly is one of the better garden Daffodils and in addition to that she has a great emotional value. She is indirectly named after our father who died in 2003 on the first of March. I promised myself that I would name the first beautiful seedling that grew after his death First of March, and this daffodil was it. And she is such a good Daffodil; she flowers early and very long, with a fantastic bright yellow colour. The tuft I planted in my mother’s garden years ago, has been growing back every year and each year it looks just as beautiful or even more beautiful than before. But as my father would have said, ‘If they don’t bring home the bacon, they can go.’ Of course, I will save a few bulbs for my own garden, but the nursery is going to stop growing them. This year you can still buy them from us, maybe next year as well if there are some good leftovers, but after that, First of March will be done.
