Comments on some of the new cultivars
Jos Atkinson, 25A Yellow. A Peter Fraser raising, a big yellow intermediate that looks to have both size and form to make it on the show bench. 

Clive Skinner, 25B Pink. A tight medium intermediate, a Bill Hannah raising.

Jessica Lynn, 25B Light Pink. Another from Bill Hannah, appears to be a very solid flower.

Cream John Wingfield, 24B Cream. Likely to follow all the other Wingfields and be a winner on the show bench. Early thoughts suggest it will be equally as good as the other Wingfields. 

Cream Egret, 23B Cream. If you are a fan of Egret than this is one for you to try. 

Charlie Galimore, 24 B Pink. A lovely pink medium reflex bred by Harry Lawson. Looks promising, has good form. Named after the well known northern grower.

Myss Saffron, 29C Yellow. A bright yellow double suitable for the show bench and cut flower, will carry 6 good blooms per stem.

Southway Shimmer, 29D Yellow Single. Highly rated buttercup yellow single. 

Southway Snowcat, 29D White Single. A good prospect for the show bench. 

Caukeel Cadet, 29C Red Double. A neat flower recommended for cutting.

Miss Marion, 29C Cream Double. Brings plenty of well spaced blooms per stem, should make a show flower, and also good for cut flower. 

Southway Summit, 29D Light Bronze Single. A lovely neat bloom for cutting and show. 

Myss Carol, 29C Yellow Double. A good prospect with 5 or 6 blooms per head. A potential winner. 

Mary's Miracle, 14A Pink. A huge bloom that will not be short on size,  Bred from Dorridge Crystal with all proceeds going to The Chemotherapy unit of Walsall Manor Hospital. Could possibly be grown as a late on 2nd crown. 

Burntwood Belle, 3b White. A Fairweather seedling of similar height (3 feet). An 8.5 inch pot is recommended with 3 or 4 blooms per plant. 

Norton Vic, 5B Purple. A purple medium intermediate with silver reverse. A Fairweather x Daily Mirror seedling growing to about 4feet. Grow 2nd crown and 3 blooms per plant. 

Bronze Gigantic, 1 Bronze. A sport from the popular Large Exhibition Gigantic. Possibly a little bigger than Gigantic and Golden Gigantic. Will match the Silver and Amber sports. A must for the section 1 fans. 

'Don't Start'. 7A Pink. An excellent new large late single. Won the seedling of the year at the Late National. It is not often that good new large singles become available. 

'Purple Inspiration' 7B A deep purple medium single, seen on good form at the Late National Show. Good form and super colour. 

Hartsill, 25B White. A Medium Intermediate. Good size and form. May finish like an incurve. 

Yellow Rosa Hockeday, 25B Yellow. A Medium Intermediate with good size and form.

Dorothy Weaver, 25B Bronze. A Medium Intermediate with a lovely bronze Colour. 

Mary Sweeney, 29D Yellow Single, - comes highly recommended. 

Sheila Harris, 3B Bronze Medium Intermediate. One for the show bench, rated highly by some top growers
