The day, organised by the Sidmouth Daffodil Society, will feature walks to sites where the valley’s iconic flowers have been planted.

There will also be a talk from Lady Christine Skelmersdale, who holds the national collection of Alec Gray hybrids. Chelsea Flower Show gold medal winners will also be in attendance at a plant fair in the grounds of the house. Entry is free and the event will run from 10am until 3pm.
