It has been another unkind year and season for our members and seems to get harder every year to get quality plants we seek to exhibit at our shows. So anyone who benched plants at this years show deserve our thanks and admiration. No Premier medals were awarded at this show but I am sure all who made the journey were happy at the outcome and it proved better than many had dared hope for. I hope you enjoy seeing my selection of some of the plants seen on the day below but first the list of winners and trophies below.
