Mall BNCS Badge

Leading the way with Dianthus

British National Carnation Society

The following lists are of cultivars which are acceptable on the showbench for BNCS organised shows.  These lists can be used by affiliate societies if they wish in fact we would encourage them to do so.  The aim is that everyone will know where to place their exhibits which can only be a good thing for all.

Please check these lists as we add new cultivars
