Yesterday I went to the RHS Plant and Potato Fair in London.  Rather than grumble about one hall being full of potatoes, I would like to celebrate the spectacle and achievements of the nurseries in the other hall.  I'm not entirely sure whether this thread is in the right place - it was not after all an AGS show - but I was there to photograph plants for the Joint Rock Garden Committee.

Hippeastrum

The first plant which greeted me at the top of the steps was this Hippeastrum.  I don' t have a note of what it was, or whose stand it was, but it gives an idea of the spectacle.

W & S Lockyers

BIll and Simon Lockyer had an excellently laid-out and landscaped stand near the entrance.

I always love aconites, but they won't thrive on my clay soil.

Moving on to the snowdrops on the Lockyer's stand...

Lachenalia aloides var aurea

Trewidden Nurseries had a stand of South African plants, mostly shrubs, but including this Lachenalia.

Avon Bulbs

Moving further into the hall, we came to the Avon Bulbs stand.  Sadly, there was a sign saying they thought it would be their last year showing snowdrops here.
