    I really loved the display by Edulis in the Growing Tastes marquee.  It featured all sorts of unusual edible plants as well as some marvellous pod sculptures.

    In the Plant Heritage marquee the display of milkweeds (Asclepias) was eye catching with its evocation of American desert habitat.

    Allium

    Warmenhoven  can always be relied upon to put on a magnificent display of alliums, but unfortunately I don’t find their website at all user friendly. Downderry Lavenders were, as ever,  downright gorgeous and Avon Bulbs was where I finally cracked and bought some plants – 3 Ornithogalum magnum – the tall white spires in the centre of the picture.

    The plant discovery of the show was the fascinating range of Ginkos on the big plant nursery stand.
