Last few of my pics  Note the container for Alan's Shortia, a meat container!  And he still won a first for it, no wonder, count how many shortias he managed to cram into that thing.  Just shows, what the plant is in is not always important to the judges!

Sanguinaria-canadadensis       -Mi???
 Sax.-dinnikii
 Sax-quadrifaria                   -Bainbridges
 Shortia-in-meat-container-     Alan Newton
 Soldanella-Sudden-Spring               
 Tecophilia-cyanocrocus-               Mike ??

I'm thinking Alan N's Shortia might be one BIG plant, lifted  from the open garden?? 8)

it might have been I suppose.  Never thought of that.  Whatever, it looked really good and few people noticed the container it was in, that's for sure.

Like others we arrived back from Hexham an hour ago after spending a small fortune at the farmer's market  - just finished the venison sausages !  The show was as good as ever.  I took a few pictures with the small coolpix as I could not face lugging my DSLR with various lenses taking pictures of everything.  I would still have been there.  I saw Peter and had a word with him.  He was manfully going round the benches taking pictures for the forum so I did not feel the necessity to copy the same.   The ones that I am posting were those that caught my eye - not only winners.  I just had a look outside and the temperature is zero.  Of course, I have three Rhododendrons just about to come into bloom so we will see what tomorrow brings.

Paraquilegia anemonoides
Primula 'PinkAire'
Primula
Disa uniflora
Primula bracteata
Primulas and Dionysias
Shortia uniflora kantoense
Iris aucheri 'Endigo'
Tulipa humilis albo-caerulea occulata
Pleione 'Eiger'

A word from the man himself.....it's a mushroom box, and one big plant that has always been grown in it. 8)

Unless those taxonomists have been at  their mischief again, the Fritillaria "albidiflora" in Christine's post - Reply 15 - looks to me like a Fritillaria tortifolia    ???

Just shows, what the plant is in is not always important to the judges!

I must remember that! ::)

Maggi,  Alan Furness had grown it from seed and there were detailed notes about it, it was in one of those classes.

Thinking about your glazed pots, Anthony? ::)
They're the only ones that stand up to the weather in my garden. The terracotta pots with my cyps in are either cracked, or the rims are flaking off. Needless to say, I put the plant in the offending shiny black pot into the garden where it will now stay. I have repotted some of my other cyps, and you'll never believe this, but they are in even bigger glazed pots. If I decide to enter them into a show I'll bring them myself. :P

Back to the show. Some superb looking plants there. Thanks for posting the pics.
