                           Saturday 4th of May 2013 at Cheadle

A good show despite fears of a shortage of auriculas which turned out better than expected by most, a few gaps on the auricula benches but  some very nice auriculas were benched all the same.I think the high spot was the quantity and quality of the primula section at this show this year with full benches of a good range of primulas seldom seen at this show.
