Wonderful show Brian.   Now you really can't leave us hanging without a cultivar name on the Disporum smithii, it would be too cruel.  What a plant!

Our group had its public sale today. I spied a medic friend who I hadn't expected and asked "What are you doing here?"  He said you people are really good at advertising, there was a poster in the operating room all week long.

Brian, I think that nowhere is too far for the redoubtable Mrs C. Coller.... she is a marvel and the delight of every show secretary within reach of her van, I am sure. Such exhibitors with so many fine entries are manna to a Show organiser!  8)

Seeing a lot of plants at this show that were also on the benches in Glasgow today, which is rather worrying for the Aberdeen show, on the 21st!  Time for the pre -show panic to set in.... what will there be in two weeks time?

Really good pictures and on the web site so early, thank you,
I did not have far to travel today but my plants did yesterday courtesy of Alan and Brenda Newton...hope Alan hasn't got a hernia carrying the P patagonica as was in a 36cm pan...was actually in an 18cm pan grown out through bottom into the plunge sand and I double potted it into a larger pot on Thursday with a large volume of plunge sand!!!...took quite a bit of doing I may say

Thanks Brian, now I don't feel pressured to process photos tonight, which after two 3 hour drives is just as well!

Class 9 Lewisias were back left L. Trevosia, Middleright L. cotyledon hybrid, front was a L. Carousel Hybrid

Good day, excellent show and Cecilia scoring 29 points! I can't muster that many, never mind 29 capable of winning a first!

George, very impressed by your Petunia patagonica. Mine doesn't have a flower on it yet.
(mind you it didn't flower last year either)

Thanks a million Brian for the excellent photos and great show report.

As an afterthought maybe if our various groups were to put up posters in many different but apparently unlikely places, we would gain some members otherwise ignored. The operating theatre, the local butcher's  shop, golf or tennis clubs, Govt department buildings, HM Prisons or wherever (that last would have to be for the staff of course, yet many low security prisoners are keen gardeners within their system. Why not alpines too?) At the most recent meeting of Otago Alpine Garden Group 7 new people attended a workshop after posters were handed round at my market. Not sure how many joined but they were all very enthused and asking questions so obviously interested.
