The first training event of the season for the Heralds of Spring project, now entering its third season of recording historic daffodil varieties in the Tamar Valley, was attended by 12 people.

They were told what to look for when surveying daffodils and introduced to a new phone app to make surveying easier and more accurate.

Rachael Forster from Tamar Grow Local, the organisation who delivered the training, explains more: ‘We hope the app will speed up the surveying process, increase the accuracy of the results and enable our eagle-eyed daffodil spotting volunteers to capture interesting varieties. We also hope the app will encourage more people to be involved in the project.’

The next training event will be held at Weir Quay on Monday, March 18 between 2 and 4pm and will enable surveyors to learn about the most common Tamar Valley varieties of daffodils and discover the subtle differences between them.
