Our weather was unkind again to us this year, I think we saw all 4 seasons in the first 3 months of this year including a hot summer heat wave followed by cold windy weather so we feared the worst leading up to this show. Actually we had a nice show on the day, down in exhibits and Exhibitors but not as bad as we were expecting I think, so we were quite pleased over all and a very enjoyable day. Below you will find who won on the day and what with, if you attended the show I hope you enjoy seeing again a sample of plants benched on the day and if you were unable to get to the show I hope you enjoy seeing them for the first time.
