Lingarden in UK claim their daffs are never touched by human hands in the 
whole process...they don't even sell by count anymore but by weight, graded of

Production also is moving, rapidly I think, to the Third World (narcissus in 
north Africa and Zimbabwe of all places, for example is what I hear).
