Pinks Championship Show 2016
9th July 2016 Dobbies Birtley
A great start to our show season, Pinks galore but not many other genus and most exhibitors put the lack of Border and Perpetual Carnations down to the strange growing season. So it was thank goodness that the ever reliable Pinks came to our rescue and boy what Pinks they were.
Jeff Sloane taking the Championship and Brian Potter the next prize, Best Vase in show. Great show lads, look forward to seeing you all next year.
Winning three vases below.
