The Seed Distribution closed on 28 February 2018. Any remaining seed will be available at the plant sales at the shows or from the Secretary.

Many thanks go to Lynn and Allan Guest for all their hard work and expertise in running another successful Seed Distribution this year.

Spring is nearly here and soon our plants will be flowering. Please give a thought to the 2019 Seed Distribution and make a few extra crosses so that you can contribute to next year's seed list and help keep the Society viable and growing.

Announcing new additions to website uploaded on 4th January 2018


The Show Pictures for the 2017 Knowle Shows have been uploaded to the website.

Yet another particularly difficult year for the exhibitor.
Congratulations to those growers who succeeded on the showbench this year.

The show pictures can be found via the INDEX TO ALL ILLUSTRATED SHOWS near the bottom of the Site Map on the Home page.

for 2016 onwards
A revised Exhibitors' Handbook is now available to view prior to its planned distribution to members with the Society Newsletter.

The revised handbook contains only the Rules, Standards and Guidelines for the Knowle and Saltford shows.

The main changes are that
      - three pip plants are allowed in Edged Show Auricula single pot classes
      - three trusses are required for Border Seedling classes and five trusses for other Border classes
      - Gold Laced Polyanthus no longer need to have their immature pips removed
      - all pots must be round and terracotta in colour
      - exhibitors can show in the Beginners classes provided that they have not won five or more first prizes at NAPS shows in preceding calendar years.
Otherwise the revision is for clarity and accuracy. Read the parts of interest to you and be up-to-date.
Many thanks to Allan Guest and his helpers for all their hard work and expertise.

The Show Schedules and directions to venues for the Knowle, Saltford and Romsley shows have not changed and are available on the Information For Exhibitors web pages.
