Program by Brent Heath

Title: History of the Daffodil Industry

The Gloucester Genealogical Society will meet on Monday, March 27, in the Chesapeake Room at Brent & Becky's Bulbs on Daffodil Lane at the start of Ware Neck Road.

The meeting will include a program on the daffodil industry Brent Heath, owner of Brent & Becky's Bulbs, will speak on the history of the daffodil industy.  The story begins with daffodils growing naturally in regions of Europe, and moving naturally throughout the continent before they were transported to distant lands by people.  The flowers were intentionally introduced into Great Britain over the channel and then they were transported over the Atlantic to North America.  A market for cut flowers and bulbs emerged. Heath will talk about how that industry began and progressed to where it is today. 

The regular meeting of the Genealogical Society is free and open to the public, and will begin at 10 a.m.
