Alan Spencely's Blackpool Show Forrest medal Trillium nivale. It is a super compact plant with pure white flowers. Surprisingly to many the winning plant was shown in a black plastic pot! Just shows you can't keep a good plant down. Judges at Blackpool must like small Trilliums because last year John Forrest won with Trillium rivale. - Photo Sandy Leven.
Fred Hunt with his 12" pan of Tecophilia cyanocrocus which took the Forrest medal at the Edinburgh show. This magnificent panful was part of Fred's 3 pan exhibit along with Fritillaria aurea and Corydalis incisa. - Photo Sandy Leven.
Cyril Lafong with his wonderful plant of Pulsatilla vernalis, which was awarded the Forrest Medal at Stirling. This superb plant won the medal at Edinburgh last year. Cyril certainly looks deservedly happy with the result! - Photo Sandy Leven.
Remarkable Double SRGC President Ian Young and First Lady Margaret took top honours at the Glasgow show with the same magnificent plant of Daphne petraea grandiflora which won them last years medal [unless they actually have two of these magnificent shrubs!]. The plant was fabulous, the largest any of the judges had seen. If Ian and Maggie count the flowers on it and tell me, I will let you know but I can tell you every one was perfect. The judges decision was unanimous. Congratulations on the 'Double'. Only one difference Margaret stayed at home so is not pictured. If you want to see her, look at last years picture!
