Going on the experience of past show reports and pictures, I too was very surprised to see a Third on one of Cecilia's plants. She's probably compost it! ::)

Thanks Darren for identifying the plant. I just thought it was a beauty. Wow that is some display that you have just showed us. Would be interested if you have a spare plant sometime, just love white flowers. I can't understand why the judges don't like it. I would have given it a first.

Diane I think all our brains were overworked at the conference, well my little brain certainly was. Nice meeting you and hope that there will be plenty other occasions to meet up in the future.

They DO certainly take up a lot of space and are not very forgiving of the pots being crowded together - they get botrytis if the air can't circulate around them. It also makes it difficult to keep an eye out for aphids! Some seedlings under the bench have been badly infested this spring and I'm tempted to chuck them rather than risk virus.

I'm also a bit worried that I am down to just two plants of the pure yellow so must pollinate and sow seed this year.

My Ranunculus speciosus flore pleno flowers are all hose in hose this year. Strange to see but I like it.

Anne this is it. I have to move it because a dwarf Daphne has covered it. If there is a spare tuber you can have it. Apologies for the writing

Looking back through this thread I noticed Mark, you asked about Anemone nemorosa as a crevice plant. Surely it is the ultimate crevice plant as I remember seeing, way back in 1981! Anemone nemorosa happily flowering in the (can't spell here) cricks and grykes of the Yorkshire dales. I didn't get much opportunity for walking when I was in the UK but that particular day I remember well. It was beautiful to see this plant, presumably native, flowering in a wild habitat.
