John Nevill's New & Recent Large Exhibition varieties

Tuesday, 22 April 2014

After over 40 years of growing Large Exhibition Chrysanthemums, its certainly gives me a lift to have a few new varieties.  Here are the plants of John's new and recent varieties.  What I particularly like about them is that they have relatively early stopping dates and can easily be grown on 1st crown
