More daffodils for Oak Lawn

Thanks to a generous donation from the former Director, Dr Philip Moors AO, the Gardens has just planted a staggering 6,000 daffodil bulbs on Oak Lawn.  A total of 20 cultivars were planted in specific patterns (according to size and colour) so we'll see lovely waves of daffodils nodding in the breeze from late July through to September. Included in the selection were varieties such as Bettina, Fair wind, Filigree, Glad days, Golden Dawn, Orange Crush and Sun White and Welcome.  

The new bulbs build on the existing daffodil display of 200 daffodils planted last year which added a much needed burst of winter colour to Oak Lawn during the cooler months.
