Daffodil growing has been an important industry in Cornwalll and the Isles of Scilly for over 100 years. Today, despite competition from flower imports, the industry remains strong: Cornish daffodil farms are some of the largest and most efficient in the world, supplying flowers and bulbs to all parts of the UK, to Continental Europe, and to the USA, bringing pleasure to millions, and employment and profit to the county. "Golden Harvest" is the first book to tell the story of the industry. It also offers tips to gardeners on how to get the best from their daffodil bulbs. The book is fully illustrated with specially commissioned colour photographs.
