Hello All,
  With all votes in I am pleased to announce the results after a close vote demanding a recount.
For Seedling 2817 – 3W-WWP the voting was as follows:-
  ‘Perfect Ending’  proposed by Kathy Welsh    20 votes
  ‘Goodnight Kiss’ proposed by Chriss Rainey  18 votes
  ‘Cool Blush’  proposed by Niels Benator 16 votes
For Seedling 2619 1Y-P the votes were :-
  ‘Spring Sunset’  proposed by Kathy Welsh      17 votes
  ‘Pink Tulle’  proposed by Deborah Green    16 votes
  ‘Pearly Pink’   proposed by Ceci Brown        15 votes
Congratulations to the winner of both , Kathy Welsh and those who came so close. Maybe I should seek Kathy’s advice in future about names that might prove popular! It was not planned that there would be only one winner for both seedlings – but that is how the 20+ of you all voted.
I have checked the RHS web site and to two top nammes are available and I wuill ask for them to be reserved pending submission of application forms.
I may wish to use some of the other attractive names for other flowers in the future. Accordingly I will also be glad to send a small package by way of appreciation  to those who came 2nd and 3rd in the voting. So to those of you who are listed above, please let me have your mailing addresses by private e-mail.
Thanks to all who participated and voted – I hope you had some fun.
Brian Duncan
