The society was formed in 1962 by interested persons and originally named the Australian Daffodil Society.

Our general aims are:

To spread knowledge of and cultivation of daffodils

Assist in the promotion and development of exhibition, decorative, cut flower and garden daffodils

For members to work in friendship and fellowship in the development of daffodils

Provide and operate facilities for these purposes

 

The society holds regular meetings, workshops and flower shows and produces three newsletters a year. We train and provide judges for the program of Victorian Daffodils Shows
