A few shots to get you interested. Inevitably the artificial lighting has led to some slightly 'off' colours

Two plants of Biarum davisii shown by Cecilia Coller

Aruncus aethusifolia shown by your intrepid reporter

Cotyledon undulata which would have won Ian Instone a prize for weirdest plant if there had been one

A close up of Crocus banaticus

I should have said the crocus above was shown by Robin Pickering.

Next is a lovely plant shown by Eddie Spencer. My scribbled notes say Crocus cupanii but I think I should have written Colchicum

Two views of Crocus goulimyi Mani White shown by Lee & Julie Martin

Cyclamen africanum, Tony Lee

Two Cyclamen graecum plants from Mike & Christine Brown, the second winning the trophy for best Cyclamen in the show

Diplodiumcoccinum, Barry Tattersall's Farrer Medal winning plant

A Goodyera species shown by Alan Newton. I'm convinced there are snowmen in there with carrot noses!

Hyacinthoides lingulata, Mike & Christine Brown

Liriope muscari Gold Band. My apologies to the exhibitor(s), I forgot to write down your name.

Myosotis aff pulvinaris shown by Eric Jarrett. A lovely cushion. I wonder if it might be M. glabrescens, we'll need to wait till the spring to see the flowers

Oxalis perdicaria Cetrino (not entirely sure I've got the specific name right) shown by Ivor Betteridge.

Petrocosmea grandiflora shown by Ian Sharpe

Petrocosmea minor, winning Dave Mountfort a Certificate of Merit

Bob & Rranveig Wallis's medal winning six pan
