A nice red auricula from Elizabeth Maddock.
This entry from Robin Pickering.
This pan was exhibited by Georgina Instone [I wish I could grow them].
A wonderful plant shown by Brian Marshal from seed sown 01/01/2003.
Just to prove that a Cowslip can hold its own in the show arena. This plant was judged best in C and also helped Colin Dolding win the Trophy for most points in that section. Well done Colin. Also congratulations becoming our new Director for the seed exchange.
Last but not least this one from Susan Sutcliffe.
Congratulations to robin Pickering who received the Cheshire Salver for most points in B.Also congratulations to Colin Dolding for winning The Bernard Green Bowl for most points in C and the Cheshire Spoon for the Best Plant in that section. A hearty thanks must also go to Elizabeth Maddock and her team for organising the show and at a new venue, which isn't always easy. Never the less everyone got there, it must be the Alpine Bloodhound gene that sniffs out new venues.
Mel, I grow a few Pleiones and have found what works for me. I seem to remember being told they grow up mountains and along stream edges, so like it really wet in the growing season. I keep mine in the shade and constantly wet from April till first frost, I also feed them when I water them. Once they have gone dormant and lost their leaves I repot them in a mixture of John Innes No 2, leafmould and moss and keep them dry. Once they start to shoot (February or March) start watering.
