A little bit quiet, but there were more sales stands than usual so I purchased some alpine plants.

Anyway, here we go!

There are some different colours of Ashwood Carousel....mine is orange, the picture shown here is yellow and others are salmon pink and magenta etc......

I bought calceolaria and campanula....both are new for me to grow......

I was hoping to enter this show in the novice section,but the hassle I would have had getting up the a13,due to the marathon,put an end to that idea.
Have you not thought of entering,Naoto?

I grew Calceolaria Darwinii Years back for a couple of years But it was a martyr to green fly

Thanks for your advice, Bjs!

Perhaps I need to get ready with Vitax Organic spray - I shouldn't use synthetic bug killer for this, should I?

Agree stay away from the strong ones they are detrimental to a lot of alpines especially ones with thin or soft leaves.What I have taken to doing in recent years where a strong killer was necessary is spray, leave it on for only a matter of minutes then spray the plant again with clean water to remove.

True.....but Vitax organic 2 in 1 REALLY stinks (lol - because it consists of sesame seed oil and fish oil)
