Outreach Projects

Over the years, members of the Georgia Daffodil Society have helped spread the cheer of daffodils in many ways. We have donated bulbs to schools and rehabilitation facilities, public gardens and cemeteries. We have also rescued daffodils from the bulldozer, giving some new lives in public spaces and others new lives through our bulb sales.

Daffodils rescued from the old Hastings farm site now lost to pine trees, from the family’s original daffodil test bed dating to the early 1920s. So far two varieties have bloomed – Queen of the North and Aspasia.
