Is that the sale that was in Cavendish last year?  I enjoyed that and it did not seem to matter that I was not an AGS member.
Almost in Scotland.

 Nice bit of subtlety there - I think we can safely infer from this question that Mr L. Scheldeman will be  hopping the Channel to attend the sale with some of his super bulbs!  ;)

Both Luc's will be there, of course  8)
I'm convinced we bring an excellent selection this year with a focus on oncocyclus

I'm not going this year. No more early flights on a Sunday - bad Easyjet. I would have had to arrive today and spend loads at Beeches ;D
