Pity about the weather, although it looks like people are having fun ratting through the seeds, would love to see a pic of the plants for sale bench  ;D
I love the little epimedium.

So do we Helen... it is such a perfect wee plant - thankfully the judges thought so too!

Congratulations, Carol ;D

Btw, can someone tell me what the plant third from the top in the third lot of pics posted by Graeme is? ???

I hope that Maggie has a picture of Sauromatum venosum as it was on the bench on Saturday. We tried desperately to get it to open, so it obliged this morning (Monday). Pity. There is now a nice aroma in the front porch.

If you mean this pic, Helen, then it is Anemonella 'Betty Blake'

I think you should give the plant a little less viagra! It looks as though Aberdeen had a good show despite the weather, the Scots are a hardy lot. Thanks for letting us have a glimpse of whats on show. Good to see Nick Boss still doing his stuff

Yes, thanks Maggi, that's the one.
It's beautiful, will have to keep my eye out for seeds.
I notice it wasn't listed in the last seedlist.

Carol, maybe now would be the time for people to start requesting seed they are interested in for the next seedlist  ;)
It couldn't hurt eh ;D?

Good grief, how many thousands  of items on the seedlist ???????   and Carol is still taking a pessimistic approach :o

Carol, lie down in a darkened room for half an hour to restore your usual confidence.... take chocolate if needed!  ;D

Just take chocolate, needed or not, the 'n' word is irrelevant! ::)

All donations of chocolate gratefully received  ;D

Maggi I think the seed list is a blooming miracle! Where else would you have the opportunity to get some of the seed? Even if we had to pay double what we do now it would be peanuts really  :D

Apologies: still no time to prepare the photos from the Aberdeen Show.
Members visiting the SRGC shows are now asked to "sign in" to satisfy the Charity Commissioners as to the number of members taking up the availability of free entrance to the shows ; In sorting the paperwork from the show I find that a Dutch Member of the SRGC  visited the show but he did not make himself known to Ian or myself so that we could welcome him. what a pity  :'(.... perhaps he is very shy, so I will not give his name. I hope if he visits again next year, he will say hello. :-\
