Berlingo  now loaded -some would say overloaded.   Hope plants survive  the journey.

Glad to say Stan did manage to squeeze in the car with all his fabulous plants….  and it was a treat to see them on the bench. 

His display of blue and yellow plants was well received and much commented on. 🥰

Thanks  Susan. The blue & yellow were some bedding plants which one would not normally  take to an alpine show but  I though a small gesture  might be appropriate. I'll post  some  pics of the  many fine alpines  at this  very well organsed show once I've  sorted them out.

Once again Frank & Barbara Hoyle tabled a magnificent  large 6 pan in class 1 which  won the Sewell medal and included  the Farrer winning Sax Coolock Gem - a most appropriate  name -and a merit certificate winning Dionysia aretioides. They also received  another merit certificate for a saxifrage in another class.

Don Peace retained the Hollett trophy for most 1st points in the open section. He also took the AGS medal for the  small 6 pan class and  the Clarkson trophy  for the best ranunc with Callianthemum  anemonioides.

Chris Lilley won the Kirby cup for best foliage with Saxifraga Cecil Davis.However my notes seem to be inadequate here as I also  photographed  Alan  Oatway's Meconopsis with a  Kirby  cup card  beside  it . Anne Wright  won the Duncan Lowe award for best plant in a 19 cm pot with Narcissus Giselle, one of several elegant  little narcissi  she exhibted. Pat Murphy took the Michael Roberts trophy for section B and the David Mowle award for best bulb in a 19cm pot in sections 2/3 wth N Medway Gold.

North west members staged  a very informative display  on growing alpines in containers  which the judges unanimously  recognised  with a large gold medal. It was too large   to get in  one photo.
