John Hamilton's Open Day
Saturday 7th. September  2013

   It was the Saturday after the National when myself brother Alan, Les Smith and our pilot Mike Richardson ventured North over the border. It was a chance to see some late blooms in our best growers greenhouse John Hamilton. We were assured of a Scottish welcome first visiting Bert Nelson's for a lovely breakfast our thanks go to Bert and his wife.

   At John's we saw a splendid display certainly the best blooms I saw this year. The top scot growers were there Ian Donaldson, Kennedy McQuiston, Ronnie Welch and others. There was fun, hilarity and banter but best of all a magnificent display. A week later John did show locally and won best exhibit in show. Thanks John and Mari for a splendid day.

The excellent pictures were taken by Jim Evans.
