Application form to register a daffodil cultivar name

The application form includes notes that include registrars' addresses and guidance on completing and returning the form.

If possible, please send photographs with your registration form. Two photographs, one showing the daffodil face on and one showing the daffodil sideways on, would be ideal. The photos can be digital and sent via email or can be prints or photographic transparencies.
