Partner loaded mainly foliage /autumn but a few  gentians somewhere in the middle. Even putting a couple of pots in the passenger space couldn't get  everything in.  Growing outside means too many plants.

This Eastern Australian orchid, Pterostylis coccina, has won the Forrest Medal for the best plant in show at Hexham today, grown/shown by Bob and Rannveig Wallis.  SRGC rules applied this year at this joint Show.



Congrats to  Bob and Rannveig!

Another view of Bob & Rannveig's well deserved Forrest plant.   The Millenium trophy for best foliage plant  was  Cyclamen mirabile from Don Peace. The best cyclamen in a small pot taking the Ewesley salver  was shown  by Derek Pickard. The Patricia Furness vase for the best small pot other  than cyclamen went to David Millward for Crocus xantholimos. John Richards  took the LW Browne  trophy for best gentian  with  The Caley.

The David Boyd award for  class 74 an African plant went to Ian Instone. Two merit certs went to a pair of  Raoulias  shown  by Alan Furness . Vivien Self won the Inner Eye for most firsts  in section 2(intermediate) while Michael Wilson took the Newcastle trophy for best plant in section 2. Finally  I received the Ponteland bowl for most firsts by  bringing most plants many of them foliage  but with a few gentians and saxes
