Welcome To Ringhaddy Daffodils
Excellent daffodil bulbs from Northern Ireland
Welcome to our 2014 website. We hope you enjoy looking through it and that you find it easy to use. Currently we have not got images of every one of our varieties, but will continue to add them.
We have fourteen exciting new introductions this year. (Click on "New Daffodils" and choose "2014" to see them all) including:
- Nine new varieties of our own breeding; 'April Dawn' (2Y-O), 'Bells of Joy' (5Y-Y), 'Citrus Souffle' (4Y-Y), 'Hot Date' (3W-O), 'Hot Lava' (2O-O), 'Oh Wow' (3W-P), 'Poetry in Motion' (9W-GYR), 'Saffron Strand' (3W-YYO) and an Intermediate 'Solar Eclipse' (2W-YYO).
- Two seedlings from Brian Duncan; 'Fine Trim' (2W-YYO) and 'Snowy Canyon' (4W-W).
- Two delightful flowers from Harold Koopowitz 'Little Dianne' (8W-WPP) and 'Marilynn Howe' (7W-P).
- Another of the late Manuel Lima's green autumn flowering varieties 'Lima's Green Success' (12G-GGO). The autumn flowering varieties are proving to be very popular and have been regularly featured on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/RinghaddyDaffs . We have unfortunately had to temporarily withdraw a number of varieties as demand was so high last year.
We had an extraordinary year of climatic extremes in 2013. Snow in March meant a very late spring followed by an unusually hot, dry summer. Consequently the bulbs were able to dry quickly after lifting and so were in excellent condition for selling. By October we had some rain which softened the ground ready for moderately easy planting.
Once again we would like to thank our loyal customers for their continued support. We very much enjoyed meeting many of you during 2013, in Ireland, the rest of the UK and also in Columbus, Ohio, where we spent an enjoyable few days at the ADS Convention. We hope to see many more of you this year and would extend a very warm welcome to anyone who would like to visit the field during the flowering season.
Best wishes to you all for a happy and successful growing season in 2014.
