John Hunter Receives International Award!

It gives us great pleasure to learn that long-time NDSNZ member John Hunter was awarded with the prestigious Peter Barr Memorial Cup by the Royal Horticultural Society in London.

John Hunter with Peter Barr Cup

The Royal Horticultural Society awards The Peter Barr Memorial Cup to a person who, in their opinion, "has done good work of some kind on behalf of the daffodil."

John has been breeding daffodils for 60 years, and is especially noted for crosses involving N. viridiflorus, giving autumn and winter-blooming daffodils, many with green in the colouring.

Well Done John!
