Plant images from Mid West (Tewkesbury) Show, 13th July 2013

I'm away for the next week so it's now or never to upload a few images from the show with minimal fuss or waffle!

Lots of interesting plants in the show,over 360 of them in fact!

The big talking point of the day was the heat however and the very wise decision for an 'early finish', I think met with unanimous approval!

A general view of the show

Judging in progress

Helichrysum plumaceus was voted the best plant in show and Farrer medal for show secretary Eric Jarrett

And here's Eric!

Campanula asperuloides, shown by Paul and Gill Ranson was a worthy Certificate of Merit winner

Both 6 pan AGS medal classes were won by Cecilia Coller who took the Hilliard Cup for the most 1st prize points in the open section, here's Class 1

And here's the small 19cm pan class

The Frank Badrick memorial trophy, a three pan bulbous class distinct class, was won by Bob and Rannveig Wallis.

Note the amazing flowers of Calochortus clavatus subsp recurvifolius - crying out for a close up image!

The weirdest plant (Glebelands trophy) was awarded to Saxifraga fortunei 'Mt Nachi', shown by Lee and Julie Martin

Three more Certificates of Merit were awarded, starting with Ledebouria cooperi grown by Alan Newton

Asyneuma pulvinatum, grown by Eric Jarrett

And 'South Africa' specialist George Elder's Androcymbium striatum

George also showed Pelargonium auritum ssp carneum, seen in close up here

Silene acaulis 'Mt Snowdon' was judged the best plant in the Novice section winning the Wessex water trophy for Pauline Carless

Alstroemeria hookeri is one of best diminutive species of the genus and this well coloured clone was staged by Lee andf Julie Martin

Campanulas were as usual at a Summer show, present in good numbers and here's a few representative, ever popular species.

Campanula fragilis shown by Cecilia Coller

Campanula hercegovina nana shown by Ivor Betteridge

Campanula rotundifolia subsp arctica 'Mt Jutenheimen' (now that needs a big label!) shown by Martin Rogerson

Campanula Maie Blyth shown by Ian Sharpe
