I haven't got all the files I need to create the official results pages for the Exeter show yet. Any Show Secretaries out there please note I need these from you immediately after the show if I am not there. Meanwhile here are some pics that Jim Almond has sent for the official reults pages. Any one else who was there please add your pics.

That one was Eric Jarrett's Farrer Medal plant - Chionohebe pulvinaris!

Looks like this is Eric Jarrett's as well - spot the Chionohebe.

I haven't had time to look at my photos from Exeter yet, let alone post them; my every waking hour since returning from Exeter has been spent running the London Show.

However, I can tell you who these entries belonged to.

The Chionohebe and the six-pan containing it belonged of course to Eric Jarrett.

The winning Veitch Trophy entry was by Peter Erskine, featuring a superb Certificate of Merit pan of Fritillaria tubiformis, his pan of Fritillaria conica which won a Farrer last year at Kent, and a fine pan of Fritillaria forbesii.

The Graham Lovell Salver was, I believe, won by Richard Manuel for these three fine orchids.

The fabulous Fritillaria yuminensis which won B Section was grown by Jim Loring.

Last but not least, the Viola pedata which won Best in C Section, was grown by David Nicholson.

I'll try to look out some more pictures from Exeter, and London, tomorrow.

Thanks for that Jon. I now have the results since getting home from London last night and they have been uploaded with some more pictures.

Viola pedata

My apologies to Mike Quest. The official results, now posted, indicate that it was he, and not David Nicholson, who exhibited the Viola. It goes to show that a photographer's memory shouldn't be trusted ! In this case, although I had photos of the viola, it had managed to evade my notes, and I was relying on memory of the show, which now seems a long time ago.

Formal Show Photographs

Last in this series of postings of 'official' photos from shows earlier in the year, here are some of my photos from the South West Show. Again I have tried to avoid duplicating pictures found in the show photo-gallery, but I couldn't resist posting a different view of the fabulous Farrer medal winner.

Fritillarias

One of the highlights of the show was presence of fritillaries in numbers not seen at the earlier shows. Peter Erskine won a Certificate of Merit for Fritillaria tubiformis (see the photo in the show galler), but also entered this fascinating three pan.
