First the Levers'  Farrer plant Sebaea Bychan which had to beat off some every strong competition - see merit certificates shortly.  Don Peace's  fine plants took several awards  with a merit certificate for a Fritillaria Lentune Slate , the AGS  small 6 pan medal and the Sandhoe  trophy for  best plant  in a 19 cm pot with another frit F. pinardii. He also took the Cooke plate for most points in the open section. Final one of this  group is George  Young's  3 pan from  a named continent - North America -  which took the Bill McKenzie trophy.

Next the new David Boyd memorial award for a Hepatica taken  by Alan Newton. Cyril Lafong  won he EB Watson trophy for a new, rare or difficult plant with Saxifraga quadrifaria. The Alpines 2001 trophy -in the form of a dinosaur coprolite! - for best cushion plants  which  moves  round the shows went to a very impressive Helichrysum pagopyhllum   shown by the Hoyles.  As the only entrant  to class 1 I received the AGS medal for 6 large pots.

Some well deserved merit certs. Ian Kidman's Ranunculus alpestris. Geoff Rollinson's Primula henrici.  Then Billy Moore's   Trillium chloropetalum  Bob Gordon  mentioned earlier.

My word, some really cracking plants there - congratulations to all those growers. Angus T,  the new Show Secretary, must be pleased with  the day!
Very fetching  large six pan, Stan  -good balance. I can't tell you, though, how pleased I am not to have had to carry them!
