Hexham show 2020
« on: September 25, 2020, 04:28:48 PM »
........but only via computer and plants not well prepared. I grow most outside, many in my small allotment,  and didn't have  time -or inclination !-to clean the pots properly. Some plants aren't  really show quality but I've posted them to fill spaces.  When I came to take the photos  it dulled over so most of  the gentians closed  up!
class 1 three alpines -all gentians
4 three shrubs
5 one shrub
6 one conifer-Picea mariana nana
12  three ferns

Such a  shame  it's  not  a "real show", Stan - but  I  see  you would  have  managed, yet  again, to  gladden the  heart  of the  Show  Secretary  by your  lovely  entry! Thanks  so much for  taking the  time  and  trouble  to  prepare  this  and  share  here!

Just  as  well that isn't  going to a  real show, Stan - it  would  take  up half the  car space!!  Mind  you, you  have  a  few  pots  like  that!! ;D :)
