Scottish National C&D Society - 10/11 September

The Scottish National Chrysanthemum and Dahlia show is held at the Albert Hall in Stirling.  The chrysanthemum results were as follows:

In the class for 6 vases of 5 large blooms, The 'Mason' trophy, there were two entries this year: Tom Buchan (Fraserburgh), and Dave Scott (Grangemouth).  Tom's entry gained the red card for an excellent exhibit that included Pearl Celebration, White Pearl Celebration, Cherry Chessington, Yellow Courtier, Lynn Johnson and Primrose Chessington.  Unfortunately Dave's entry was NAS'd due to the inclusion of a vase on a medium cultivar in a class for large flowered only. Tom's vase of Pearl Celebration was selected as Best Vase in Show. 

In the class for 6 vases of three blooms, large and/or medium Dennis Morrice was first with Woolley Globe, Carlene Welby (2)Clapham Delight, Kimberley Marie and Woolley Pride.  JR Thirwell was second with vases of Millennium (2), Tennis, Primrose Tennis, May Riley and Hedley.

The class for 3 vases of five blooms, large and or medium cultivars had three entries this year.  Paul Barlow's entry of Woolley Pride, Cornetto and Pink John Wingfield took the red card ahead of Jack Kevan's entry of John Wingfield plus the Pink and Peach sports. John Currie was third with a full set of Courtiers - yellow, Gold and Apricot.  The vase of Woolley Pride in Paul's entry was selected as best vase of Mediums in the show and second best vase overall. 

The class for 6 vases of 5 medium blooms had only one entry this year from Paul Barlow, this entry consisted of Kimberley Marie, Carlene Welby, Cornetto, Woolley Pride, John Wingfield and Millennium. 

The premiere spray class requires 6 vases of 5 stems of Exhibition Sprays. Again only one entry this year from  Eric Wilson (Penpont near Dumfries). Eric used Rose Enbee Wedding(2),  Oriel, Primrose Enbee Wedding, White Enbee Wedding, Peach Enbee Wedding.  

The best vase of sprays came from John Dempster with Broadway Mandy.
