Wild Daffodils

The soil of the Cotswold Scarp does not favour wild daffodils which do not tolerate lime. However it is a different story just across the Severn near Newent where they grow well. Unfortunately modern farming and soil improvement has brought an end to the vast fields of flowers which used to bring people from far and wide to view and pick the flowers but there are plenty left in the woods, orchards  field margins and and verges where they give a spectacular display for a few weeks at this time.
