A show  in itself, Stan!  Rather  breezy  and  overcast  today  in Aberdeen - so the temperature  in the  Winter  Garden would  be less  likely  to induce  heat exhaustion in plants  and visitors!

A great display Stan with these plants you would certainly have been collecting some more firsts and trophies to add to the extensive pile you already have achieved.
You get my top award for taking the time to assemble, photograph and post your plants for all the shows we have missed here in the forum where we might all enjoy them.
THANK YOU.

As per usual you have a great collection there. Hopefully next year you and them will be here. Missing everyone and off course really missing all the home bakes. Will try and get in my greenhouse and take a couple of pictures thatís if the wind calms down. The big conifers at the back of my greenhouse are looking scary in these winds.
Thanks Stan for taking the time and effort showing us all your plants that make all our shows more special.

Well done Stan.  I haven't gone to the trouble of putting my plants into classes but here are a few.

I have 4 survivors of Silene hookeri  ssp. bolanderi.  I don't remember how many I started off with.  3 of them would have been good enough to show if I could find enough suitable classes.

Another 3 Silenes

Silene hookeri compact form originally from Cyril Lafong.  The original plant died but I got some seed and a few of the progeny are still alive.



Silene hookeri from Alplains seed.  This is the colour I remember from when I grew Silene hookeri originally (a long time ago)



Silene serpentinicola also from Alplains seed.  First time it has flowered this early.

Roma some really lovely plants there . I really like your Silene hookeri , I hope my seedlings turn out like yours.
Had a quick look in green house and nothing worth showing. Said this before I am not a show grower just a gardener. I said to my niece it was a shame we missed our show and missing all the home bakes  :-[ and to my surprise some cakes were delivered yesterday  :D 
First class cakes .
