That's the last of the photos you will be pleased to hear.

I hope you enjoyed your visit to the last Harrogate Autumn show at this venue as it moves to Newby Hall next year, which is between Harrogate and Ripon so a little further away for me but possibly easier to get to as it is nearer the motorway!

The Spring show will remain here at the current Show ground which is understandable as most of it is under cover which is often needed up hear in the wild and woolly North in Spring!

These fuchsias are amazing.  Some are looking very different to what we think of when we talk about fuchsias.  :wave:

Tee Gee

We are newcomers to the show game but have done pretty well in our local show this year. My wife is impressed by your Fuchsia pictures and would like to know if other than the standards are the others just one plant or multiple plants in the same pot ?

Thanks Tee Gee.  I still can't get on with big blousey Dame Edna glads but I do like the daintier Byzantine types.

When I click on the Society stands link I get Trade stands.....

They are all one plant per pot ( or at least they should be)

I recall an incident years ago when  I was disqualified in a show for a similar incident.
 
In my case the schedule asked for 5 stems of Spray Chrysanthemums and I usually took 6 or 7 stems with me to the show in case any were damaged in transit so what did I do? I inadvertently put in 6 stems. hence the disqualification.

So if these Fuchsia judges were doing their job then yes! One plant per pot!

I hope that answers your question!    Tg

Thanks Tee Gee.  That Vegetable Society display is amazing.  Just imagine how much onion soup and bhajis you could make with those!

Lovely photos Tee Gee. 

I am not normally a fan of large flowers such as gladioli but the colours of those shown in the photos are really beautiful.
