I heard you swept the boards, Stan! Congratulations!!  Love the dark Saxifraga fortunei, BIS, very stylish.  8)
Thanks for the phiotoss- essential for those of us unable to attend.

Great work organising the weekend from Julia Corden - all at considerable distance. Thanks to those entering the show, to Richard Green for his techie work and to Matthew Topsfield as Show Secretary at the DWE show for the last time and to all Speakers and attendees!   
 Well done to you all and thanks for sharing details here and on Social Media!

Back home after a super Discussion Weekend in Grantown-on-Spey. Thank you very much to Julia and team for putting the whole thing together; programmme, practicalities, all perfect and seamless!

I always enjoy the show, seeing so many beautiful plants up close a joy and an inspiration. The talks were all very good and interesting, and nicely complimentary, I thought. Hearing Ian Christie and Scott Cook talk on Scottish native plants brought back happy memories of walks in the Scottish hills and mountains, the origin of my interest in alpine plants.

What an asset to the SRGC the Discussion Weekend is. Its friendly and welcoming atmosphere gives members opportunity to learn from the always interesting programme and to exchange own experience of all aspects of gardening. So, as a thank you to organisers, presenters, and club; this cliff-top rock garden, as full and rich as a Discussion Wekend. From a trip to the northernmost tip of the Isle of Skye, Rhuba Hunish, seven years ago.
