Gordon also won the Woodfield Challenge Shield for his three vases, just beating Davy Carr.

Gordon also won the Best Vase of three Blooms with Heracles.


Gordon also won the Silver Medal card along with the new BNCS Medal.


One had to feel sorry for Davy Carr with being runner up in both Championship Classes, here is Davy’s vase of 12 Pink Francesco.


It was certainly Gordon’s day but your time will come Davy.



Gordons new seedling, a bright green self.

Right is the new white highly scented self, Bill Seagrave and I am sure this will be the most popular white self.
