A rare find-horticultural history from Scotland 1897 .


I was kindly sent these pictures from Scotland recently.

They show a medal awarded in 1897 to a Mr John Watson for the  best 18 Show/ Fancy Pansy Class at the Cumnock Hort. Soc. Show.

If any visitor to this site can locate any other medals etc dedicated to the Florist form of Violas and Pansies please get in touch.
