And there was I thnking that the Kent Show was pretty good! I do see why so many members are absolutely hooked on growing plants for the Shows - they are glorious. I'm with Lesley (on SRGC) who fell for the pulsatilla and Frit. davidii. Just imagine what effect these would have if featured on Gardener's World? Viewers would suddenly see a whole new vision of plants... but better still a programme devoted to them to show them off properly.

Thanks for putting these pictures up; I am always glad to be able to see something of the shows I can't make in person, and you captured this one beautifully. And what a gloriously technicolor show it was - a real riot of colours all along the benches. Nice to see Jim Almond working hard - next weekend it will be my turn again.
