Daffodil Stories
Noel Kingsbury

at 70 Cowcross Street, London

There are some 23,000 varieties of daffodil — and you can have any colour you like so long as it’s yellow (or white).

How come we ended up with so many? Aren’t they all alike? Why breed more?

A recent book by plantsman Noel Kingsbury looks at the story behind our most popular spring flower and the quaintly arcane world of the daffodil breeders, past and present.

Doors open at 6.00 pm, lectures start at 6.30 pm

Tickets for this lecture at The Gallery, Cowcross Street:

£8 for members of the GHS paid for in advance,

£10 for non-members in advance and all tickets purchased at the door (one glass of wine included).
