She is a member of the Quaker Backhouse family who, over a period of 100 years, through three generations of Backhouses, created a National Collection of daffodils. The collection and cultivation had a huge impact on the growing and preservation of these important and rare species. It has commercial significance - Britain supplies 90% of the world's daffodil needs.Find out more »
