Farndale wild daffodils


These are just getting to their best about now 7th April.
They are not considered truly native but thoroughly naturalised especially alongside streams where they seem to especially favour sandy riverbanks and adjacent damp pastures or woodland - as here substantial areas can be covered in yellow blooms at the start of April.

It's thought they were possibly brought to Yorkshire from the Eastern Mediterranean at the time of the Crusades.
The sap has astringent properties which meant it was grown as a herb in monastery gardens.

The flowering time  can be as early as mid-March (e.g. 2012) or late April (e.g. 2006 and 2013)
If wishing to see them mainly open, the National Park offer updates on their website and Twitter
