Another successful day for NE England group hosts

A wonderful show at Hexham was enjoyed by exhibitors and visitors alike with the Forrest Medal for the most meritorious plant in the show going to Trillium rivale 'Purple Heart' from Cyril Lafong. See Sandy Leven's forrest Medal report here :  and see photos here  for a first  flavour of the show  and to see  why it is so convenient to have this show next door to a supermarket - so handy to borrow the trollies to transport fat plants!

I'm told that the show was  "really good with lots of good plants from Cyril Lafong, Stan da Prato and Sam Sutherland.. Stan won the big 6 pan and an AGS medal and Cyril the big 3 pan!
Some exhibitors from south of the border did well as well, especially Don Peace."
What a great day enjoyed by all.
