The purpose of this page is to display new releases and seedlings that have been produced by predominantly amateur raisers. If you have seedlings that you would like to be displayed on this page please e-mail me with a description of the seedling/new release and a picture.
The first contributions to this page gives an indication of what's in the pipeline from two chrysanthemum raisers based in the North East of England - Harry Lawson and Peter Fraser.
Next contribution is from Phil Gurr, Phil raised the famous "Chessington" and should know a thing or two about promising seedlings!
Ron Jones also contributes one of his latest releases - 'Wally's White'
Further down the page you will find pictures of a number of seedlings that were on display at the Late National Show in November 2000.
Firstly, from Harry:

Pat Illingworth, 25b White
This seedling from Phil Gurr was originally raised in 1989 from a `Joe Edwards' x `Red Shirley Model' cross. This is the same parentage that produced the famous Chessington. This year Phil grew 3 plants in 9" pots and the plants each produced 3 blooms, 8" across. Although the parentage is the same as Chessington this seedling flowers at about 3ft 6 inches. The blooms shown in the photo look a bit rough because they were grown without any protection.
Ron Jones has been raising quite a few white incurves and intermediates in recent years, Wally's White is another from Ron's breeding programme. This is a Lorna Wood/Cornetto seedling and is named after his late father-in-law.
