Added pictures of Cardiff show
Just over a week ago i went to see Cardiff spring show. I have added the pictures i took there today.
I will have to get myself another camera before the next show – some of the buttons seem to be sticking on my camera (it was 2nd hand when i had it).
The date on all those photos is wrong – they were all taken on 17-4-2009.
The camera wanted to put the month before the day, i fiddled for ages trying to get them the correct way around but the camera wouldn’t have it. The botton seems to be sticking and skipping over what i wanted it to do.
I really enjoyed the show, the first one i’ve visited this year, yet.
I have a ticket for The Malvern spring show, and for Tatton Park show – both before i start to show myself. The first show i hope to show at is Dorrington (if i can get the time off work) then Minsterley, The Shrewsbury Flower Show, Pontesbury and Roden. Fingers crossed that i will have some plants up to standard ready for the shows.
While i was at Cardiff show i came across some compost that i have not seen before – Bracken and sheeps wool! I bought a tub of double strength to mix with some other compost. I will trial a few Begonias on it this year – and if there are some good results i will use it next year. Hopefully as it is an environmentally friendly compost they won’t need to stuff cardboard in it. More fool me i tried a bag of Westlands peat free compost again, and it had lumps of card in it again – so it wasn’t just a dud bag i had last time i tried it. I chucked quite a lot out as it was just lumps of cardboard, but i have put it through a garden sieve and mixed it with some better quality multi purpose compost, hopefully the plants will be ok in it.
