Thanks for the reminder Tony. As newbie members my wife and I are very much looking forward to attending. Is the list of nurseries detailed anywhere? Good luck for what we hope will be an excellent day.
And don't forget the Bacon & Sausage butties!!!!!
What time does it start? (I'm just wondering if it is feasible to do both Loughborough and the British Iris Society's reticulata show at Capel Manor, Enfield.)
Hi Gail - The advertised start time states from 10.00 am onwards. The day usually finishes a bit earlier than usual because there is no competitive show.
I am sorry Ron that i was not able to respond to your last post in time,I hope you were able to attend and thought the trip worthwhile,I was amazed at the numbers trying to get at the snowdrop stalls,this white fever is going to last for some time yet
Not a problem Tony. We did indeed make it ( if an hour after start due to thinking that doors opened at 11 o'clock ). We thoroughly enjoyed the day and have just arrived home. We managed to get some excellent growing advice and also bought a few choice plants. How very nice to be able to be out and about again, seeing some super plants and meeting some very kind people. Can't wait for our next outing. Thanks to everyone involved.
