Hexham Show 2022
« on: March 26, 2022, 05:56:06 PM »
Hexham early show this year was held under SRGC rules- so a Forrest Medal was on the cards for the  most meritorious plant in the Show. 
And it was won by this superb Viola brevistipulata Hidakana grown by "Kidders" - Ian Kidman. Well done!!

701945-0

701947-1
And the man himself, Ian Kidman, with the winning plant.

Another of the fine viola which also  received an award from the joint rock committee. Another superb 6 pan entry in class 1  f rom Frank & Barbara Hoyle  won the AGS medal  for large pots while certificates of merit went to their Cassiope lycopodioides and Pulsatilla ambigua. These  two were not in their winning six at the Kendal show  last Saturday  - four other plants were. Robert Rolfe took the Sandhoe trophy  for best plant in a 19cm pot wth Saxifraga Ben Loyal. Raymond Hurd won The Gordon Harrison cup  for the   Intermediate section  and an  SRGC bronze medal.

Don Peace had most  1st points  in the open section  so won the RB Cooke plate. He also had a certificate of merit  for  Fritillaria pinardii and the Roger Smith cup for 6 plants =all frits -grown  from seed. Apologies for the  dreadful photo of these  fine plants. Another of his frits received a joint rock award. Two  plants that  won merit certificates  at Kendal did  the same today : Peter Hood's Corydalis sewerzowii and  Brian Burrows' Hyacinthoides reverchonii. More snaps tomorrow

A  walk round the benches starting with class 1 large pots. The glorious  sunshine  which  everyone enjoyed  outside created some problems  for my little camera inside
