A Visit to John Hamilton's
August 2016

Editors note - These pictures should have been published last year, my apologies to John Hamilton and Robert Bryce.

Some two weeks before Ayr Show myself, Mike Richardson and John Chiswell visited John Hamlton.  His targets were the entire Scottish Society stand and also the British Championship 12 Cut Bloom class.
The pots were smaller than previous years but were still expected to have around 12 blooms on. There was a large display of Flamboyant and a new basket variety that would be named at Ayr.
The cut blooms were making good progress with a new red variety that will be named Ken Gallagher in excellent form.
        I was looking forward to seeing how it all turned out at Ayr Show and on the right is the magnificent result.                                                                                     Robert Bryce
