Some more examples of Florist Fancy and Show pansies plus exhibition Violas

In 2006 when I was forced- by disease in my ground-,which the RHS informed me would take about 20 years to disapear,(wilt)- to stop sweet pea exhibiting and breeding for annual trials at RHS Wisley and Scotland, I became very much a novice growing, and showing some of the Viola tribe, a Wullie Wallace, President of the Scottish Society, kindly amongst others,gave of his time to mentor my attempts.

He has kindly forwarded some photographs for all to share.
