Hi Anthony, thanks for all the pictures, the plants and the people were fantastic with another bright sunny day. I do not know where you got that terrible picture of me will probably scare everyone away from the forum,  cheers Ian the Christie kind.

Just getting round to putting pictures together from the show, see I am a bit late so there will be some repetition. Its the first time I have been to a Scottish show for some years, had a grand blether with old friends. The show was a fine mix of genera and the quality was as good as I remember from years ago. As usual I have just photgraphed what caught my eye. The Glasgow show has a huge range of silverware to award but I am afraid I have not recorded these.

The delphinium and corydalis are stunning but there are so many lovely things. 
Thanks for the great photographs.

Phaiophleps biflora George Young

Oxalis 'Dark Eye' Richard Barr
Tulipa acuminata Mike Hopkins....a most unusual tulip
Arisaema griffithii  again I did not get the exhibitors name but she told me that the plant had been dug out of the garden in advance of the show, a fine exhibit even though it looks a bit menacing. One picture does not do it justice but it was too large to get a whole plant view in the show hall (at least one that did it justice!)

Polemonium viscosum C&I Bainbridge unfortunately only the close up picture is good enough, the whole plant shot had too much blur...this was as good a plant of P viscosum as I have ever seen exhibited

Pyrethrum leontopodium Cyril Lafong...it still is one of my favourite plants, unfortunately not so available nowadays and I never see it on seed lists anymore...more's the pity

The genus Pyrethrum was taken into Tancetum a few years ago.  Try looking for the plant or seed under the name Tanacetum leontopodium  ;)   
It's been on the AGS seed list the last few years. 

Thanks for the pictures of Glasgow show, looks like a super show

Wnderful pics thanks to all concerned.  I loved the display of Show Auriculas and it was great to see George's Delphinium properly out as it was not quite as beautiful as that last week, although I did try to take it home with me.  George had to move pretty fast as one or two others had the same idea.


However I have to say that the Arisaema which Sandy has his back towards does look as if it's got its knickers in a bit of a twist under the flower. :o
