Don't forget everyone it's Kendal Show tomorrow.  Just time to dust off your plants.

Curious that there are big windows but the curtains are drawn!  ???  Perhaps they're drawn for privacy during judging and will be opened later to show off the plants at their best?

We just got home happy but a bit frazzled. Susan was running the computer this morning and the large number of late entries (117 I believe) were very welcome but it got very busy! Extra tables were needed.  :). Lots of entries from new exhibitors too  :) :) The show team did a great job in coping with it.

Nurseries were doing good trade, certainly I am skint anyway!

Besides the Forrest Cyril received a merit certificate for his Tecophilaea. An exceptional large 6 pan entry won the AGS medal and a merit certificate  for the Hoyles.  Ian & Marie Leslie won the Kirby cup for best foliage plant with Celmisia philocrema and a merit certificate  for Saxifraga Coolock Gem (last picture) . Derek Pickard took the Duncan Lowe award for best plant in a 19cm pot with Dionysia bryoides.
