The Scottish National Sweet Pea, Rose & Carnation Society is one of the oldest gardening societies in Scotland formed in 1919. We encourage the cultivation of Sweet Peas, Roses and Carnations through annual exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations and competitions. We also promote the advancement of floral Art at our shows where the Scottish club and individual championship titles are up for grabs.

Our annual show currently hosted by the City of Glasgow has been held in places as far apart as Elgin and Cumnock. With a spread of members throughout the country and the leading exponents of the respective sections the quality of exhibits is unsurpassed. Entry to the competitive section and to the Annual show itself is free to all members of the Society.

The Society also conducts trials for Sweet Pea varieties that are not yet commercially available. These trials attract entries from the worlds leading hybridists in Europe, North America and Australasia. The trials are held in the walled garden at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow.

Our members also take an active interest in the International rose Trials at Tollcross Park in Glasgow with representation on the International Judging Panel. While the Carnation growers among our members protect and show varieties that are no longer available from nursery catalogues and can sometimes be persuaded to part with young plants of the show varieties, on the condition that you must be willing to show the cut flowers at venues in your area, if not at national competitions.
