Beautiful ferns and no class for them
« on: May 26, 2018, 04:01:41 PM »
Our ferns are looking really good at the moment but unfortunately there is only 1 Large and 1 Small fern in the Schedule for East Cheshire next week.  Which 2 to choose.

In the Large Class are Polystichum divisilobum plumosum densum, Cryptogramma crispa and Asplenum trichomanes.  In the small Class are adiantum reniforme, Blechnum penna marina, Adiantum aleuticum and Polysticum lemmonii.  These last two are my particular favourites.

Could you not make a six-pan entry ? Give the flowering plants a shock!

Alas no large 6 pan class next week. There are always the geographic classes, 1 pan foliage and there's also one for 3 foliage plus 3 in flower. I'd blame the Director of Shows for not ensuring the classes you want are included  :-[

Maybe there should be an area set aside at shows for members/exhibitors to show their plants without the plants being put through the stressful judging process?

It is usually possible  to  enter plants "not for competition" in SRGC shows if space permits - I imagine the AGS shows are the  same - MartinR will be able to advise.

We may try to use some in a foliage class.  Thanks for the HUG Maggi.

Stunning Shelagh. Look on the bright side - the judges probably wouldn't appreciate them anyway!

This talk of ferns  made me think of Harvey Shepherd  - can anyone tell me how he is?

Not seen him for a long time Maggi.  Although he lives/ed in Bolton we only used to see him at the DW, he didn't show south of the border any more. Perhaps check with SRGC membership list.
