Blackpool AGS Show 13th March 2010

 Congratulations to Lionel Clarkson and his hard-working team on another wonderful Blackpool national show.

First few images

The worthy winner of the Farrer Medal (for best plant in the show) was a magnificent Cyclamen coum exhibited by frequent Farrer winners; Mike and Christine Brown.

The quantity (but certainly not the quality) of the plants on display had been slightly curtailed by the harsh winter and the late spring but there were still some wonderful exhibits on the benches and I will post a few examples as a taster of the images to come from others lucky enough to attend.

Many thanks to all those people who made this event such a success.

Thank you for posting these images Cliff. Saxifraga "Louis Armstrong" is a fantastic rich colour. May be tempted back to Saxifragas by that one!
