When she is right, so nearly the queen of the white Perpetuals,

Crompton Princess.








The best two Border Carnation Picotee's around, Ann S Moore and Bofield Emily.

Bob Snowball won the Championship Class with his new seedlings, not only did Bob win this class but also won Best Vase of Pinks, and also Best Stem of Pinks, all with his new seedlings.

They looked quite stunning, I am sure will be in demand.
