The talented Cyril Lafong shows his growing skill yet again, with the Forrest Medal winning (Pseudotrillium) Trillium rivale at the 2024 Edinburgh Show -  photo from Alan Gardner. Thanks Alan!
The George Forrest Memorial Medal is awarded at Shows with SRGC Rules for the Best plant in the Show - Cyril has won more of these than any other person!

Thank you, Herman - it is down to Alison Hogg that we have these photos.
 

Stan da Prato is cutting back on his exhibiting at SRGC Shows and will not be able to supply all the marvelous reports he has made here in the past - we owe Stan a great debt of gratitude for all his efforts in the past!!
We need new volunteers to go round the show benches each time to take photos for the Forum. If you regularly attend a show or shows, please conside helping out with this!
