Whilst I was researching P. marginata 'Mrs Carter Walmsley' I found this Web Site, you may find it interesting Helen.

Many thanks David - have bookmarked the site.  Just spent too many pennies buying bulbs for next spring to have a go at showing so will have to wait a while before any more purchases  :D

Out of interest I rang Mala Janes tonight about her P. marginata 'Mrs Carter Warlsley' and she confirms she that her original plant came from Ryal Nursery some years ago, the exhibit on Saturday was a cutting taken from this plant, she thinks 3-4 years ago. She has tried to find info with regards to the name via Google with no joy, Robert Rolfe says he has heard of a Major CW but again Mala found nothing on a search via Google. By the sounds of it it may be quite an old cultivar.

I can do that David - she'll be at the Hexham Show in two weeks' time.  I'll drop her a line to ask her to bring me one for you....
