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.
There are now photos of the set-up and a list of the plants used in the AGS Gold display here : http://www.alpinegardensociety.net/news/Building+the+AGS+Garden+at+Chelsea/474/

Congratulations to all involved in this superhuman effort. Another exquisite creation :-)
