Leading the way with Dianthus
There are quite a number of new introductions to the fabulous border carnation range with an ever expanding number of growers having a go at raising new plants. It is the intention of the BNCS to showcase the best of these new introductions over the next few months
For many years a small band of enthusiasts have kept the genus going. Now there seems to be resurgence in interest in growing and showing border carnations. Border carnations are, without doubt, the most elegant of all the carnations we grow and are very rewarding. As we build the website we hope to feature more of the outstanding new introductions, if you have or know about a new variety or anyone raising new varieties please let us know.
