The AGS London Show took place this week as part of the RHS Great London Plant Fair. I was hoping that one of the many people walking round with a camera would post some images, but no one has, so you will have to make do with the few snaps I was able to fit in whilst running the show. I wasn't show photographer this time, as I had other responsibilities, and by Wednesday when I took the pictures of plants I was so exhausted I could barely stand up, so don't expect too much.

But I want to start by showing you the artistic classes. The entry this year was the biggest we have ever seen at the London Show, even with a couple of our regular exhibitors absent. I took these on Monday, before they were judged, and there are a few gaps where pictures were brought on Tuesday morning, but it should give you an idea of how fiercely contested most classes were.

Class 200

6 photos of two alpine plants in the wild, illustrating a) the plant in its habitat, b) portrait of the plant c) close up of the flower.
