Initial posting from Southport Show

Heartiest congratulations to George Young from Stockton on his well-earned first Farrer Medal success with his beautiful delphinium that has attracted such attention at other AGS and SRGC shows over the past few weeks.

Another magnificent show at Southport and many congratulations to Roger Beecham and his wonderful team for staging such a pleasant and welcoming event.

The event was further enhanced by a splendid exhibition of images captured in Pakistan by Peter Cordall.

Many more images to follow when time and tide allow.

A super show at Southport yesterday, thanks to Roger Beecham and all the Southport team for their hard work

A few pictures of the day

and again close up

Dave Mountfort had also brought a load of Rhodohypoxis and won an AGS medal with them in the large 6 pan class

Southport show has been associated with Physoplexis as show secretary Roger has won the Farrer medal a couple of times with his fantastic potful in previous years. Roger's plant was not staged this year (not ready, I believe) but we had a couple of other pots to drool over.

First, a large potful of Physoplexis comosa shown by Alan Keay

and again close up

And a smaller but perfectly formed pot

Physoplexis comosa shown by Ivor Betteridge

There was a good range of Cypripediums on the bench
