Daffodil varieties for St David's Day

Thanks everyone - in the end I went for a belt and braces approach - three different varieties! I'll have to report back next year.

Treglisson - Jan-Feb

Brunswick - feb-march

Trelawney Gold - March

Daffodil varieties for St David's Day

Posted: 10/09/2012 at 22:41

I want to plant some Daffs in our new garden and as my wife is Welsh, would like to make sure that there are some up and out for the 1st of March. In my experience most full size daffs are a little later than that here in south suburban London.

I've searched a bit for early varieties, but they all claim a Jan to Feb flowering time, so they could have been and gone by the critical day.

Surely some old Victorian salt bred a variety called something like "St David's old reliable" that flowers from Feb through March?

All suggestions welcome, and I'm happy to plant a few varieties to give me the best chance, cold or warm spring.

Thanks  - Andrew.
