On the day a better show than any of us had dared hope for given a very difficult year. Although there were gaps on the benches in places some very nice plants were benched, though I think it fair to say quality was slightly down on previous years. To prove that only the only premier medal on the day was awarded to the Alpine section for the Auricula "Stella South". Once again we thank all our members who contributed in many ways behind the scenes to make the show a success.
Below you will find a list of winners on the day followed by a sample of plants at the show, I hope you enjoy seeing them again if you were at the show or for the first time if you could not get to the show.
