This is a joint meeting with the SES Plant Heritage Group. Caroline and husband Andrew run the Rossie Estate in Fife.  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.
