            Saturday 5th of May at Cheadle in Cheshire.


Despite a very cold wet and late Spring and disappointment at earlier shows this year because of reduced numbers of plants benched and quality we were pleasantly surprised at the number of plants benched at this show and some very nice plants too, better than most had dared hope for I think. No Premiers were awarded but again good quality and we thank our members for their skill and dedication in producing what we saw on the day. I hope the sample of exhibits here refresh the memories of those who saw them and I hope those who couldn't attend the show enjoy seeing a small sample of what was on show on the day.
