RHS update on Oasis:  we have received the following information about the use of Oasis for staging of our dahlias at the National Show at Wisley 2019. 
          'Just to confirm there is no ban on the use of oasis for the 2019 Wisley NDS show.  Please be aware that oasis has been banned for use at RHS competitions, in floral arranging at Chelsea and completely at Rosemoor, due to the difficulties of disposing of it, and the concerns over its safety.  It is very likely that there will be restrictions in future years so it would be worthwhile starting to think about alternatives, and perhaps encouraging exhibitors to use alternatives for the 2019 show if possible.'

There are two main parts - first photos of current NDS activities e.g Wisley, second the archive for David Brown - the society archivist, who has collected thousands of photos relating to dahlias - varieties, history people etc.  The archive now has an A to Z section which shows photos of dahlias that David has taken and collected over the years.
