Thanks for some long-ago advice
I'm throwing out a message in a bottle here.
Some years ago, someone who had moved from my part of California to a colder climate (Idaho? Montana? Not sure) gave me some advice on growing daffodils. I'm very sorry to say that I forget who this person was. It grew out of a thread on either this forum or the Cottage Garden forum, on fragrance and companion plants. This was at a time I was planting all sorts of daffodils recommended for warm climate gardens. Anyway, this kind person advised me to plant only tazettas, and that the others would not persist in my garden. Well, I wanted larger daffodils than 'Geranium', and I wanted yellow so 'Paperwhite' would not do. In the end I planted a number of varieties. And guess what -- they bloomed for a year or two or three, then all but the tazettas faded away.
This year I planted 100 'Golden Dawn', a large, yellow tazetta. And I wanted to extend my thanks for the wise advice I received years ago. I do hope that generous soul is still on the forum and chances to read this.
