New workshops for Narcissus growers


New workshops for Narcissus growers

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:

  • 13 May 2015 - Pool Innovation Centre, Trevenson Road, Pool, Redruth, Cornwall, TR15 3PL with Gordon Hanks (Independent Consultant) and Bill Basford (Independent Mechanisation Consultant)
  • 20 May 2015 - Whaplode Manor, Washway Road, Spalding, Lincolnshire, PE12 8AZ with Andrew Kneeshaw (Farm Energy Centre) and Sarah Cook (ADAS)
