Daffodil planting

Just back from the Daffodil Planting Day at Sydenham Botanic Park – steady trickle of visitors who looked at and talked about the draft plan for the gardens, planted bulbs, blew bubbles, ate sausages, asked questions and generally had fun.

Bulbs were donated by a garden centre and horticulturalist Howard Martin who knew Frank Sydenham pretty well. In a nice touch, the bulbs Howard donated are descended from those that were grown by Frank on the same land.
