Next to Amands was a stand of cut lilies.

Helleborus Walbertons Rosemary

Hardys Garden Plants had a stand of small spring perennials.  I have still not managed a good photo of this hellebore.

Broadleigh Gardens

The exhibit from Broadleigh gardens mixed all manner of spring bulbs.  I was particularly taken with the interplanting of Iris Lady Beatrice Stanley with aconites.

JRGC Awards

Now we come to the real reason I was at the show, to photograph the plants put up for JRGC awards.  There were plants from three different sources: Kew, Wisley and Jacques Amand International.

Iris Palm Springs

This was exhibited by Kew, and given an Award of Merit

Amana edulis

Again exhibited by Kew, and also given an Award of Merit.  I sat in the committee room before the meeting and watched the buds opening in the course of about 30 minutes, as the morning drew on and the plant warmed up.
