Just back from another excellent AGS Spring Show, this time held at Stockton-on-Tees.  Hearty congratulations to the Show Secretaries; Norma Pagdin and Barry Winter and their hardworking team, who welcomed a host of exhibitors and a magnificent array of beautiful plants.  The vote for the Farrer Medal winning exhibit must have been very interesting as there were contenders spaced around the hall.  The eventual winner of the 'Best in Show' and the 'Farrer Medal' was an exquisite example of the rare and difficult Dionysia michauxii exhibited by Derek Pickard, a local and very prolific grower of these enchanting cushion forming gems.

The Farrer Medal plant was exhibited in Class 10, where the opposition consisted of these two magnificent entries, each of which may potentially have been considered for the Farrer on another day.

There was a Primula left on the show-bench, which I am looking after, and shall bring to Chesterfield. If it is yours, please let me know!

I overheard someone say it belonged to Robert Rolfe!

Thanks, John. We thought that the label looked like Lionel Clarkson's. If anyone reading this has an e-mail address for either of them, could you please try to contact them?

Robert Rolfe's labels are easily recognised - hand-written in capitals in fountain pen - see the photo of Sax. x. dinninaris Ray Woodcliffe on the SRGC website Cleveland Show thread.  I can't at the moment find a photo of one of Lionel's plants this year with label for comparison.  Robert's email is not working properly at the moment, so he may be hard to contact before Chesterfield.

Below are a few photos I took at the Cleveland show. Thank you to Norma, Joan, Barry and everyone else who helped to put on the Cleveland show.
