Village Message from Daffodil Weekend

April 16th 2019

Start by deadheading as soon as the flowers have faded. Dead heading really works – you may have noticed that the daffodils on the village side of the speed hump on Fowlmere Road flowered much more strongly than many others – these were all dead headed last year. To dead h ...Continue Reading
