Malvern report....as good as ever if not a bit better. Threatened rain held off, show gardens superb, especially the childrens'. As ever GW didn't feature the latter , and then at the end sat drinking wine in the best in show garden, which in our opinion was the worst in show. ( why does the RHS award best accolades to those with biggest budgets?)
Floral pavilion showed just how lucky we are as gardeners, with dozens of great growers and nurseries showing off great stuff. So overwhelmed I didn't actually buy much. Actually I did buy some alpines to put into the niches/holes in my stumps.
The flower of the show for me is the blue camassia... all over the show... will be buying loads of bulbs in the Autumn to extend my wildflower garden.
A lovely day. Just one word of advice... the entry cost on the first day is not far off double the second day's cost (£39 vs. £22.50).
