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

No two ways about it, those glazed pots are tough..... I have quite a few myself.  :D

Some stunning plants on the show benches there.
What a color on the Iris aucheri Indigo.
Thank you both for showing the pictures, Chris and Tom!

Sadly Luit died on 14th October 2016 - happily we can still enjoy his posts to the Forum

Super images from what looked a wonderful show.  Can't wait for Peter's contribution now.  Many thanks from afar for all your team's efforts and for your own very hard work Peter ... take a well-earned rest for a few months now!  It is Chesterfield's turn now!   :)

Some Chinese split tortifolia into heaps of sub species, Christine.... I'm a Scot .... 

I bow to your greater knowledge Maggi  ::)  Here are the notes that were beside the plant along with the certificate of preliminary commendation.

Aye, Christine, as you can see from AF's notes, the naming is mildy contentious!

Something not at all contentious is the quality of Judges' lunches, served under difficult conditions ( absolutely EVERYTHING has to be brought in to the building ....no facilitiies whatsoever)
I questioned Alan Newton as to what was being presented this year and got this note and pix.....
Hi Maggi
We feed 38 people at the show, judges,rockers and helpers
Just let you see some of the food, have not put the sweets in as it might
upset you but you can ask  the First Lady as she tested all of them  ;D ;)
Love
 Alan


Can't imagine where Alan might have got the notion I'd be upset by seeing a delicious array of desserts, but here we have the main course...... shown singly and part of the 38 needed....

That's quite a feast cooked up by the Newtons isn't it?  I looked after the SRGC stand while Ann and Sandy went up for that lunch.  Didn't sell her any shirts though.  But she sold one or two herself.  We put the slide show on in the afternoon.  Must remember next year to take a multiplug as we couldn't plug in until they didn't need the printer any more.  Fun day but I was exhausted at the end.  Still no excuse for leaving the precious cup behind though :-[
