Every show this year seems to have been down on exhibits and quality probably due to our very changeable weather through the winter and into Spring, but some nice plants appeared on the day though none up to the standards we demand to be awarded premier medals. It is a credit to our members and exhibitors for benching plants to this standard in the most difficult of years and i hope you enjoy seeing a sample below, but first the list of winners and trophies.
