Just adding my thanks and congratulations to Doreen, Eric and the large team of helpers in making this such a great show. The quantity and quality of the plants was amazing. Saxifragas were something special and that wonderful pan of Colchicum szovitsii from Diane Clement (photo already posted by David on first contribution) well deserving of its' award. Well done everyone.

Plants from the 'B &C Section.

May I echo the plaudits of previous correspondents and add that in the short time that I have been exhibiting Alpines I have not seen a more diverse collection of top quality plants.A credit to everyone involved which, of course includes the exhibitors.What follows is a few images of plants in the 'Novice and intermediate' section.

Plants from the 'B &C Section.

The Saxifrage above and the following three pan were entered by Tony Hale who lifted the Beacon Trophy for most points in Section C.

Here's a lovely pot of Narcissus 'Topolino' from Chloe Eyre who, at eleven years old must be our youngest exhibitor. Good luck Chloe your on your way to becoming a 'Rockaholic'. P.S. Wouldn't it be a good idea to introduce Rock Gardening into schools, after all this is where the future of our society lies.

A very nice Dionysia from the B Section. Again from a young exhibitor, this time Robert Amos. We must encourage and nurture these growers and all younger members for the future well being of the society.

Jovibaba from Paul Street.

Cyclamen coum, entered by Robin Pickering.
