Thank you Maggi and Peter. 
The labels & captions are very helpful, but can anyone please put a name to Chris Lilley's viola?

So many well grown plants (trilliums, paris, primulas, cyclamen ...) are a reminder of how puny my own efforts are :P
 
But banning (mini)gnomes etc. (Class 22) seems like excessive good taste  ;)

That lovely viola was, I can see from it's card, in Class 45, for  1pan non-bulbous plant grown from seed - I'll see if anyone can help with it's name.
