  1. My great great uncle Richard Dawson Wellband developed the Dick Wellband daffodil and was a very well known horticulturist in Spalding.

    1. Hi I have found a book which references your great uncle. Look in section called birth of an industry.
      I will add all other sections of the book over the next week. Please share more of Richard Wellband if you have it. Maybe photo?
      He was an interesting man.
