Being a member of the GNCS can bring many benefits to anyone interested in Dianthus, our members are a mine of information on Carnations and Pinks. Included with your membership there is our well received yearbook, filled with information from the Carnation world, we try to include articles from renowned growers and hybridists.
We hold six meetings a year during Spring and Summer which are free of charge, members get together over a cup of tea or coffee and discuss their problems and triumphs, we also have slide shows and talks to help members improve their growing skills and knowledge.
We also hold three shows a year in association with Dobbies where members can exhibit their blooms or stems, included in all shows are Novice Classes where beginners are encouraged to show if they so wish.
To avoid clutter on the homepage news or new items will be detailed on the Club News 1 page with this link
