 5th. August
  
1 week to go and  things still look a little slow and need a bit more sun. Still have a few blooms left over from the Havant show (A, B, & C) Anniversary, Can Can & Mrs E McLaughlan that now look ok and will have to see if they last a bit longer.
   The shade house is looking full of colour (D & E) might even turn the fans down to see if that will bring the blooms on a bit. Have my doubts on the fans and really think some bright days would be more helpful. A few blooms look promising this Tom Brownlee (F) is fast becoming a banker for me and a must have more stock.
   The greenhouse is way behind with only half a dozen blooms anywhere near
(G & H), it's still apparent that I have a few timing issues but do feel that my growing has improved, slowly getting together the right varieties as well will help in the future. The only thing left now is to hopefully have enough blooms to be able to get my entry in by Tuesday.
