Chelsea Flower Show 2016    It's judging day at Chelsea today  .... the AGS has had their display judged and awaits results - it's looking good, I think, from the photos available on Twitter and Facebook.
The display makes extensive use of troughs, which SRGC have always found to be successful with judges and public alike. Good luck for a  Gold Medal to the team who have helped to build the  large, colourful display!

I hope the bbc show some alpine plants at the show. The bbc seem to shy away from Alpines as if the general public would not be aware of them. At least some mention has been made this year of our own native plants.

Massive delight for Scottish RockGC as our dedicated team of volunteers are declared to have won both Premier Gold and Alf Evans Award for Best Alpine Exhibit at Gardening Scotland - so very proud of them for their efforts in putting on such a fabulous display! Well done! Congratulations also to all other award winners at this great show.
