David Millward received  a merit certificate for his fine Ramonda which had won the top award a week ago in Dunblane. Your correspondent retained the Walker of Portlethen  trophy for most (900) points in section 1, won the Simpson salver for Rhododendron Snow and a  merit certificate  for a dwarf  Enkianthus. This was in the class for Ericaceous  plants other than  Rhododendron . It seems Enkianthus has joined several other  genera in being subsumed into Rhododendron  but that info is not yet in the show schedules.
more snaps in the morning
