Two workshops designed for growers of Narcissus will take place this May in Cornwall and Lincolnshire, from the Horticultural Development Company (HDC).
The events: ‘Optimising bulb treatments, post-lifting’, will focus on best practice in bulb dipping, drying and storage. The events will build on the information presented in the HDC Narcissus Manual and HDC Factsheet 10/13 'Hot-water treatment of daffodil bulbs'. Further presentations will provide an update of HDC funded work within the sector.
The workshops take place on:

- 20 May 2015 - Whaplode Manor, Washway Road, Spalding, Lincolnshire, PE12 8AZ with Andrew Kneeshaw (Farm Energy Centre) and Sarah Cook (ADAS)
