Blooms are hard to beat
IN response to the query by Rosemary Miller about the origin of Farndale’s wild daffodils (Bulb theory query, April 11) – in truth no-one’s really sure, but they were probably planted by Mother Nature.
The wild daffodil is one of our native plants. It grows elsewhere in the North York Moors, as well as in other parts of Britain and Western Europe, but the abundance of blooms found in Farndale is hard to beat.
The moist pastures and soils of Farndale along with its woodland provide the wild daffodil with ideal growing conditions and left undisturbed, it spreads naturally.
You can do your bit to help ensure Farndale continues to bloom year after year by keeping to the paths wherever possible.
