Chrysanthemums in Scotland 
publications from the NCS Scottish Group

Please note: if this page is your entry point into this website be sure to visit the site Homepage - there is lots more information available. Click the Homepage link above. 

Over recent years The National Chrysanthemum Society Scottish Group have issued a number of publications on the subject of our favourite flower. Although we are predominantly exhibitors it is recognised that not everyone wants to enter their flowers in a show. Hopefully there will be something for gardeners at all levels of interest.

The aim of this website is to share the publications and the chrysanthemum enthusiasm we have in Scotland with as many people who care to visit this site. If you can't find what you are looking for or you would like to discuss chrysanthemums then please e-mail me at :

What you can find within these pages:

This publication provides the stopping dates used by growers in various parts of Scotland.
