Stuart's going cristate and a touch monstrose. Three bosoms and a weird face on his trousers. Spooky..... :welb:

Love it, well done Tony, everyone will be steering clear of Stuart incase it's catching

Everyone has made a really good display it's very impressive, Brian is lucky as he has a lot of choice with the size of his greenhouse .

varied collection of succulents and cacti but I especially like Euphorbia's and variegated agaves.

A couple of photos I took of the Southfields display, notable for the sheer number of Astrophytums on the stand

There were a fair few succulents dotted about in the garden displays, but these huge Echinocacti growing in old steel oildrums were very splendid
