Bill, Dell, Anyone?....

Is this seed collection of this strain of Narcissus tazetta the same as was
a few years ago?  Or is it now more developed/extensive?  I ask because I
received some by this name from the old BX a few years ago (not flowering
for me yet... I think they're around 3 years old?) and I am wondering
whether these will be any different to those.  I find it rather fascinating
and am waiting to see what the flowers look like (I think I could still be
waiting a while for the majority of them, but there are a couple I have
hopes for next season <fingers crossed>), but if these are likely to
include different varieties I will get soem more of them.

I have deliberately sent this to the list rather than just to Dell as I
thought that Bill or someone else who knows the answer may read it.

Thanks in anticipation.
