Thanks, Carole and Alisdair,
I should point out that my partner, Will, is co-gardener and the designer of the rock garden in particular! He's the designer and I'm the plant chooser ;D
Back to the daffodils!
Here are a few new ones:
1) Narcissus KB-M-DEC-1WY-1-18 - a little cutie at less than 8cm high!
2) Narcissus "Steplings" - these are seedlings Lawrence Trevanion has raised from his Narcissus bulbocodium hybrid 'Gold Step' so there's a little difference between the seedlings,
cheers

1) Narcissus 'Katie Heath'
2) Now a nice clump, this is a narcissus seedling raised from a locally raised hybrid 'Romsey'.
From a sowing in 2005 I got 20 twenty seedlings in 2008 but there were only  3 bulbs when I repotted in 2012! From 4 planted out in 2014 I got two flowers that year. These all appear quite similar in appearance so I wonder if they are all descended form a single bulb prior to 2012?
cheers

But it would be god to know why he named it "Wub Wub"!
I am establishing a garden on Waiheke Island, 35 minutes out of Auckland. The site is windy, the clay soil dries out quickly in summer and is like plasticine in winter, but it is still very rewarding. Water is an issue, as we depend on tanks. I'm looking forward to sharing ideas. Caroline

Hi Caroline (and Alistair)
Lawrence has an interesting take on naming his daffs! This one is in his "Baby Talk" series - based on sounds and "words" his children came out with when they were little; others include 'Gefk', 'Untschen' and 'Quen Dor'
cheers

Interesting re the names but while I may well remember "Wub Wub"  I don't think "Untshen" or " Gefk" would have much chance.😕

I think Lawrence had his tongue firmly in his cheek when naming these ;D

From September 25th, this is 'Solveig's Song' raised by Rannweig Wallis and named for her sister.
I believe it was imported into Australia by the late Marcus Harvey at his Hillview Rare Plants Nursery in Tasmania. I did have it from him years ago but managed to lose it :-[
However Josie, a member of our group, was more successful with it and I was able to get it from her a few years ago  ;D
