A fantastic show up in Northumberland, adding to the run of outstanding shows this season.

First, a couple of cushions Dionysia 'Bernd Wetzel' shown by Sam Sutherland

Primula 'Broadwell Milkmaid' shown by Don Peace

Rhododendron cephalanthum crebreflorum shown by Brian Davidson

Pulsatilla 'Budapest Seedling' also shown by Brian Davidson

Ornithogalum sigmoideum (was O nanum), shown by Alan Spenceley

a fabulous big potful of Iris bucharica

a few frits: first is Fritillaria amana shown by Don Peace

Fritillaria pinardii shown by David Millward

Fritillaria acmopetala wendelboi shown by me. There has been some doubt cast on this name, but it has now been confirmed that is the correct name and is a different clone than the one previously seen under this name. Apparently, it fits within the defining characteristics of the very variable subspecies

My two personal favourites of the day Shortia uniflora kantoensis shown by Brian Davidson

And Narcissus Twin stars shown by Jean Wyllie

And thanks to Peter Maguire and all his team for an excellent show in a series of what is proving to be an excellent show year. I look forward to next week at Chesterfield
