One of the aims of the Society is to "Encourage the raising of new varieties of exhibition and bedding types of Violas arid Pansies, and award First Class Certificates and Awards of Merit to cultivars that reach the standard" This had gone into decline as the Society struggled in years past. Now that we are once again in the ascendant, the Council consider it appropriate that we should encourage members to produce new cultivars and present them for awards. Therefore member who wish to submit seedlings may do so on May 12th and June 16th 1998. Blooms (more than one of each variety if possible) should be posted to the Secretary to reach him on either of these dates with the following information:
type - e.g. Exhibition
viola name or seedling reference
date of raising
details of the cross - seed parent x pollen parent.
As we are a florist society, blooms will be judged against the standard for each variety; a copy of which is included with this newsletter.
