A fair day, bringing to an end (more or less) a truly dismal and incredibly wet winter with a glorious blaze of tropical colour!  The highlight of this Show has to have been the impressive display mounted by our newest visiting exhibitor, namely the Writhlington School Orchid Project, from Radstock in Somerset.  The School's "Gardening Club" has built an enviable reputation for their expertise in orchid growing - evidenced by several fine specimen plants on their display - and propagation, and their hands-on conservation work.  To find out more about them and their valuable work, visit their web site.
