Q Are pink daffs worth grow­ing? THERESA MILLS, BUCKS

A Pink daf­fodils have come a long way since the in­tro­duc­tion of ‘Mrs R O Backhouse’, be­fore 1921, which is a rather pale, salmon pink. ‘Bell Song’ and ‘Kaydee’ are fine, small daf­fodils; ‘Pink Par­adise’ and ‘Re­plete’ are larger pink and white dou­bles and ‘Easter Bon­net’ is a good pink and white trum­pet daf­fodil. ‘Pre­co­cious’ and ‘Per­fect Lady’ are par­tic­u­larly bright, small-cupped cul­ti­vars.
