Some more pictures
Leptospermum nanum Pipit, a tiny offering from Brian & Shelagh
Cyclamen hederifolium Ruby Strain, part of David Boyd's 6 pan and best cyclamen in a small pot
Microcachrys tetragona, best plant in B or C sections, shown by Stan da Prato
Heuchera Hearts of Fire, just to prove Sue G has other skills beside baking
I'll stop at that as the rest would be repetition

Some very nice stuff there. That Aruncus is a most startling colour, how perfect is that? I do like the Trochocarpa... don't have one of those  :'(

Ooh, and more have been posted, how did I miss those... back to the thread...

Well well, I DO have a Trochocarpa NOW! Tim Lever had some for sale at the Discussion Weekend  ;D
I've had a note from Trevor Jones, about the terrestrial orchid shown in the earlier pages, named as Pterostylis coccinia
Here's the note, sent last week when we had just left to go to Glasgow, so only picked up today:

"Hi Ian & Maggie
    Just reading the comments on the Ponteland show & there is a picture of Pterostylis coccinia, someone identified it as that & noted the one I had put on was a different name.
Could something be said please, as the new name is Diplodium  for that sp. It was explained to me that Pterostylis curta & the others all flower from the centre of the rosette, but Pterostylis coccinia sends out a runner & flowers away from the rosette, I hope this makes sense & I have explained it properly. Other than that it's those pesky botanists keeping themselves in work!. All the best

And wasn't it a super plant!  I too took its photo, it was sitting there saying look at me, look at me.  Who could resist.  So exotic!

I'll just point out that the plant in the photo is not Trevor's one, his was a smaller version in a two pan class with another Diplodium.
