Here are a few photos of inside the Flower and Plant Pavilion yesterday.

A mixed bunch


Sweet peas


Hollyhocks and Foxgloves, some beautiful colours and I have to admit to buying Halo Cream.

Such beautiful displays.

Beautiful, but coddled and chosen from probably thousands, so no point in you thinking of giving up Stera! Our plants have to contend with the weather, an army of slugs and snails, erratic watering (or is that just me) and a myriad of other problems, but these displays are usually just a select species that are nurtured with just the shows in mind, so if you devoted all your time to one plant, you too could probably have a stunning show-stopping plant - but we're gardeners and want the lot!
Thanks Thorneyside for the inspiration, hope you enjoyed it.

Glad you wen and enjoyed it :)

Thank you all. I have to agree Honeysuckle. Not a blemish to be found and yes thank you, I did enjoy it. I was offered Chelsea but it's too claustrophobic for me and you can't buy plants either. Now we all want to buy at least one if we go to a show if only to prove we went!

Cheers Honeysuckle- you're right of course...
