I don't know really which Topic area to put this in - it was an RHS show, so clearly not an AGS Event, but there isn't really anywhere else suitable to put it.

Last Tuesday (14th February), I was back at the RHS Halls in Vincent Square to photograph plants for the Joint Rock Garden Committee.  It was a pleasure to be back in the square, under the limes in the balmy sunshine.  This show always reminds me of my friend Ruby Baker, who used to come up on the train from Farnham to see what snowdrops might be exhibited, and would be surrounded by galanthophiles at the show.

 

Arum concinnatum Agia Varvara

RBG Kew exhibited three different cultivars of Arum concinnatum.
