There were some excellent Perpetual Carnations on show, Brian won nearly all of the Awards.


A huge thanks to Syd Wilson the BNCS Historian who is meticulous with completing our show analysis.

We would also wish to thank the staff at Dobbies who make our society welcome at their venue, special thanks to Alex who sets up our display tables and has all in hand for the exhibitors arriving, we would also like to thank the manager Paul for all of his time and assistance in putting on our show.

Below some really good Pink exhibits and once again the society thanks all of those exhibitors and show team, without such there would be no show.


The Best Vase I have seen of Moor Nola Gwynne and deservingly won Best Vase of Pinks for Liam.

Keith won the Border Championship with a nice vase of 12 Braeside Boy.

Keith also won the George Shields Memorial Shield with Nichola Ann, Peter Cunningham and Mystic Dawn.

Keith completed the day with winning Best Vase in the show.

Liam stopped a clean sweep by winning the Best Bloom with a bloom of Mystic Mel.
