My Life with Daffodils
with Eric Breed, Dutch International Photographer and bulb expert
on Thursday, October 17, 2019, 7 p.m.

He is the son of Kees and the late Fia Breed, who owned what may be the largest collection of narcissi, tulip and colchicums in the world. Famed bulb expert Wim Lemmers is his uncle.

We are delighted to have Eric enlighten us on his travels into the wild, his family’s legendary bulb collection, and the criteria used by the Dutch when seeking new flower bulb varieties for the industry.
