Plants to note were WARWICK the Grey Edged which won the Newton Trophy for Chris Gill, Chris also won the Teem Trophy for his Green Edged plant of CHLOE, the Judges decided not to award a premier medal on this occasion for the Show Auriculas, there were some good plants on display but none of the high standard required to be awarded the Premier medal.

Best Double Auricula was shown by Pat Salt, it was a SEEDLING and it won best Double seedling and also went on to win Best Double Auricula and the Premier medal.
