Daffodil Planting Day
Site created and maintained by davidmparr




Jo Riches had suggested that Reach was daffodil deficient compared to local villages so she organised (wonderfully!) a Daffodil (and other bulbs/plants to add colour from January to April) Planting Day which took place on Sunday 25th October 2009. Over 50 villagers attended and carried out the planting which took just over three hours to complete.

The bulbs/planted planted were;


Crocus Blue Pearl
Daffodil Juanita
Daffodil Dutch Master
Small Daffodil Obvallaris
