Has anyone else noticed that a bunch of daffodils in Sainsbury's consists of only nine flowers? Is this a new way of making extra profit? I know that there is no law to say that there must be ten in a bunch but I think it is still the norm.

Organised crime! I suspect the Daffia!

I think anything over several could be considered a bunch, but no more than 12.
No more than 11, that should be. 12 would be considered "a dozen".
Boring day in your neck of the woods?
Must be if you're counting the daffs in a supermarket!
(There are only eight tulips in the bunch I bought at Waitrose this morning-just counted them- but they were reduced to 50 pence.)

For gingejbee: No, I am thoroughly enjoying myself submitting clients' tax returns but I bought SWMBO a couple of bunches yesterday and when she put them in a vase she noted that she only had 18 whereas those from other supermarkets all had 10 per bunch. It still looks like stealth profiteering to me

:-)) very funny Douglas made me giggle
For RocW....there's your answer - buy from the other, more generous, supermarkets.
12 for £1 in Morrisons. Pushed the boat out and bought 2 bunches
Daffs are very pretty no matter how many but I prefer to see them growing in the garden or in the wild. I won't have them in the house because I loathe the smell of them, it's awful.
