Welsh produce brand Blas y Tir delivered new season daffodils to the Welsh rugby team ahead of their clash against England last weekend.

The delivery was in response to comments made by Welsh rugby defence coach Shaun Edwards, who questioned whether daffodils are available at this time of year.

England coach Eddie Jones jokingly had said that Welsh fans could throw their daffodils at his team prompting Edwards’ response.

Blas y Tir’s Huw Thomas said: “Good natured banter is part of the rugby fans’ psyche, and no more so than when Wales plays England. Wearing the daffodil is part of the Welsh rugby fan’s uniform, to us it is more than a flower it is a sign of national pride and good luck."

Pembrokeshire-based Blas y Tir, owned by Puffin Produce, also gave out 10,000 free daffodils to Welsh fans in Cardiff following the match, which sadly saw the home side lose 16-21 to England.

The company is hoping to hit the milestone of producing two million bunches for the upcoming daffodil season, with blooms available now in Welsh Asda and Morrisons stores.
