Hello Paul,
We are introducing Olympic Gold, details below and picture attached.
Regards, Martyn

Olympic Gold, bred by Gordon Dowson, is an early intermediate (25b Y)
The foliage is similar to the parents, Primrose Chessington and Millennium, and it grows to around 1.5m (5') in height. Olympic Gold has a strong, straight stem and a good neck. The stopping date is 7th April for early September flowering (based on the North East of the U.K.) and it should be grown 2 up.

This will be an excellent addition to the show bench for the 2012 show season.

Hi Paul, 
Hope you have had a good season- it has not been the easiest, especially with the amount of rain in the North!  We have 5 varieties of Rod Fox's sprays going out this year, 4 of which he regards as good potential exhibition varieties particularly Myss Dorothy and Hoagy. The variety Terracotta is purely a garden variety but is nice and early:- 
Myss Dorothy (29c) which is a large reflexing creamy white with excellent form and neat, natural flower placement. Rod is expecting this to be sought after as he himself has had enquiries. PCE. 
Hoagy (29d)-an excellent bronze single with large flowers on strong pedicels. This won the seedling class at the 2010 National and should, in Rod's words, be popular with exhibitors. PCE. 
Paloma Redeye (29d) which is a vivid red with good natural flower placement on strong pedicels. Good for cutting and exhibition. PCE. 
Paloma Regent (29d) an intense purple with neat flower arrangement. PCE and PCC. Terracotta (29c) a lovely early flowering light bronze primarily a cut flower and garden variety. 
We are also releasing one of Harry's cultivars, Geoff Aird (15b), a bronze October flowering variety. 
I have attached photos of all of these though the sprays are all in "bunches" as opposed to being arranged for exhibition, Thank you in anticipation.
