South Coast Area Show   &   National Show

Phil Champion

 22nd. July
   Only a week to go and things are still looking a little slow but we are being told the summer is about to start.  (A) shows how things are looking in the shade house, at last a bit of colour to look at. A little more sunshine over the week end and into next week should help push things on a bit. You can now see the stem at the top of the plant, (B) all the growth is now channeled into the flower.
   A few promising blooms (C) Isabel Keenan (D) Sweet Dreams & (E) Snowbird. The buds for the National are now pushing through (F) and now require collars to be fitted (G). The greenhouse plants  (H) are a little more behind left a few with smaller buds as an insurance against a heat wave.
