Of course, Paddy. Although I have already choosed the better.



Ewelina,

Your comment is the best compliment to the plants at the show because the photographs you left to last are still of excellent plants. I have seen photographs of Lamium armenum on several occasions but have never grown it. It is a beautiful plant, one I must watch out for.

Many thanks for all the photographs, really enjoyed them.

Razvan, great photographs also. Many thanks.

Yes, there are shows in Bratislava, Brno and Prague at about the same time. I was in Bratislava on Saturday, then in Brno on Sunday and then Prague on Thursday. I will post some pictures from Olomouc botanical garden and then from Prague, but those tomorrow.

Razvan, because you was on 3 shows tell me please, which show you consider the best? If you could visit only one, what should you visit?

Well, the show in Prague was definitely the best. The setting, the plants, access, (though no public toilet available - at least not one that I could find). For buying plants: Brno. All plants there were cheaper and maybe more diverse (there were a lot of orchids, saxes, woodlanders, etc). If I'd have to choose between botanic gardens definitely Brno Arboretum for variety of plants, variety of habitats and design and of course for their inovative use of rock features. The best feature in the Troja BG - Prague - I think is their Japanese garden, which at the time of my visit was marvelous with all the Rhododendrons in blossom.

And now some pictures from the BG in Brno. There is no entry fee except for the glasshouses, and the location is close to the center.

alas the trip is over, stunnings gardens, good hotel but very very poor food. I had the idea to bring the laptop to edit photos daily but it was impossible. I have almost 1000 photos to go through before you see any. later maybe

Delighted with what I have seen to date and looking forward to a big report from Mark on his return and recovery - a few good dinners at home will see you well again!
