    I'm only just catching up on past discussions due to my computer being down but I was a bit disappointed with this year's show. I'd not been for three years and it seemed quite a bit thinner on the ground with only one tool company showing and big empty spaces in the floral marquee. That said we were there from just after opening until kicking out time so it couldn't have been that bad. Bought a beautiful lime green heuchera for a themed pot and a gorgeous deep purple hydrangea which I'm sure I will turn white without any trouble.

    almost didn't see half of it which was in Hall 6 with the Food Show - I do wonder if other people realised there was lots more to see inside.  And why give out the show guides in the 'goody' bag when you are leaving? could of done with it going into the show
