That's the lot. No apologies for the large number of Lewisias. I can't get enough of them (although my wife might disagree!)

I tell alie. One more.

Martin

Thanks for posting these; I particularly liked the lewisia you posted immediately before Cecilia's Rulingia - I don't know why I didn't notice it on the day.

I'm sorry it has taken so long to clean and post my photos; I didn't get home until late Sunday night (I had to stay until the show closed on Sunday before I could take the art exhibits down), and I have been out with other commitments three nights in a row since then.

I took 620 pictures at the show, of which I have cleaned up about 220 to post. They fall into three groups:

a) the display put on by the AGS on the days before and after the Saturday show

b) a few shots from the Floral Marquee, taken on Sunday, in particular of Ian Butterfield's wonderful display of Pleiones. I should have taken more of these - Edroms, Kevock and Tale Valley Nurseries all had excellent stands, and there were some lovely Cypripediums on McBeans (C. parviflorum v. parviflorum was highly desirable), but somehow I didn't have the energy and inspiration

c) pictures from the AGS show on the Saturday, mostly formal 'studio style' shots, but also some around the benches.

I'm not sure I will get to post all these tonight, but I will make a start in a little while.

Display Bed

At the entrance to the hall, there was a display bed, or rather, three display beds, hastily constructed by Jo Walker and a team of willing helpers on the Wednesday before the show opened, to show how alpines can be grown in the garden.

Display Bed

I think they did a pretty good job; these beds attracted a lot of attention from visitors.

The same theme was continued further into the hall by two huge tubs, planted by Simon Bond, one containing an interesting collection of ericaceous plants, and the other a group of dwarf conifers.

Trough Display

On the show benches themselves were an array of troughs, again planted with a selection of alpines suitable for the open garden. On the Saturday of the show, these were moved to the side tables to make room for the show plants.
