Thanks to Jim McGregor for organising this and to the judges who've spent time considering the efforts of the exhibitors. This show gets better every year which is a tribute to my fellow competitors. We get to see plants grown around the world to add to those we see at the 'live' shows here in the UK. Congratulations to all

I also echo Martin's comments. It was nice to see the judge's comments this year.

The show is over then for another year,I sit here wondering what to do for the next hour,waiting to watch Notts forrest beat Derby county in tonights Footy.I wondered where the judges would have gone for the best in show had there been one,Could it have been Martins Lewisia Ashwood Ruby,or Eberhards Cyprepidium reginae,or maybe Diane!s Daphne.What do you think.

It's interesting to have the judges' comments. I entered a Saxifraga 'Peter Pan' in the Saxifraga hybrid class and it was marked NAS as it was a ?Named form of S moschata and not a hybrid? The recent book by Malcolm McGregor lists it as a "mossy hybrid" and the Saxifraga Society list it as having unknown or uncertain parentage. I'd be interested in more information please. Who is correct?

Excellent images

Thanks to all the exhibitors, the judges and the Society for this excellent resource. Congratulations to all the winners and a special mention for the superb plants and beautiful gardens exhibited by members from outside the U.K.
