Cross border co-operation
In March Scottish rock gardeners join their Alpine Garden Society colleagues for a show of early alpines. Until recently this was held in Blackpool but it’s now in Kendal . This photo shows only part of the hall. Despite such intense competition the medal for best in show went to Cyril Lafong from Glenrothes for his well known dwarf Trillium rivale Purple Heart; his 55th such win. Sue Simpson-Watt whose Ayrshire garden was the destination for a Caley trip recently also did well with her saxifrages and a very good Pulsatilla. These and many other photos are now on the SRGC forum under shows.
