    Grand photos - looks good.  Doesn't seem too crowded which is what puts me off going to a flower show.

    Beautiful acers and hostas.

    Mickfield Hostas are about 8 miles from here. Can anybody explain (words of one syllable please) why I haven't been there yet?

    Need to put that right very soonimage

    Enjoy the rest of your day Andy.

    If you see the company Ferntastic take some pics for me pleaseimage They're another local company I only learned about on Thursday. Apparently they've done very well with the awards and I may need to get to know them better.

    Got back from Harrogate flower show couple of hours ago. Lots to look at but got rather busy later on.

    Ooh, missed this thread!  I went to the show on Thursday for a change - usually I'm there on the Saturday - when there were lots of serious plant buyers around.  Lovely plants!  I took a few photos...

    Brilliant pics! I would love a whole garden of Acers, like in Andy's first pic! Are those Slipper Orchids, third down, Liriodendron?
