harrogate spring show 2017

It seems there are only four alpine nurseries exhibiting at harrogate this year and no pleione nurseries. A declining hobby?

I have heard from an alpine nursery that the main reason for no longer going to Harrogate is the lack of outside storage space for their plants. The plants become etiolated indoors and the public do not want such plants. I have drawn this problem to the attention of the show organisers to see if something can be done.

Another nursery has also confirmed the reason is lack of storage space.

I have heard back from the Harrogate organisers to say that "now the new hall has been completed there is loads of space for vehicles and plants."
