Primula 'Broadwell Milkmaid and
Primula allionii 'Crusader' were shown by Geoff Rollinson in 11, the Crusader was as good an example as I have seen, not too easy to grow.
And finally, saving the Forrest plant till the end, I know there are already quite a few of it been posted but here is another
Trillium rivale 'Purple Heart' from Cyril Lafong

Many thanks to our Show photographers, their time and trouble is greatly appreciated. Not being a 'Showy' person myself I'm still astounded by the quality of plants on display and the skill of their growers, particularly so of the magnificent Primulas .

It's wonderful to see these photos -  our Veteran Vet is right when he suppose that some members must  be undergoing concentrated weight training to be able to carry those huge pots!

 That pot of Primula allionii 'Crusader' is a show stopper for me.

There are at least two of us exhibitors who are recovering from hernia operations at the moment. My fellow exhibitors have been very helpful, carrying in heavy plants that I am not allowed to lift! At home, the two lads who live next door have been very kind in helping me pack and unpack the car. Every exhibitor should have a few porters! (of course, at Hexham we have supermarket trollies.)

Thanks again to all the photographers who spend so much time at the show photographing, and afterwards posting them on the forum. Thanks again to all my porters at three shows this year.
