The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) explained that its Daffodil Show at its Garden Wisley site went ahead as planned this week.
Copious amounts of flowers were on display both yesterday and today (April 13th and 14th) at the horticultural attraction.
According to the RHS, there was something for garden enthusiasts of all skill levels, with everything from miniatures and new seedlings to special varieties grown especially for show.
Growers exhibiting their daffodils at the event battled it out for the best bloom prize and the prestigious Engleheart Cup, which is awarded for the best display of 12 cultivars raised from seed by the participant.
Attendees were also able to check out the Trials Field, which is packed full of plants undergoing inspection from RHS experts with a view to finding the best cultivars for garden environments.
In other news, the RHS revealed that six of the UK's public gardens are set to benefit from a £13 million funding boost. -
