Thanks, Jim, for making these available in such a well presented format.

Some great plants/photos - well done to everyone who entered.

Looks like Class 13 needs to be re-judged. I would have thought the 3rd place, a variegated Agave, was NAS in a Cactus Class :oops:

Thank you Jim, much easier to navigate!

A question about the multi-plant classes, e.g. "Class 6. Succulents — three plants...". The winner (https://bcssimages.zenfolio.com/p890864939/h9824fc3d) is a collage of 3 individual photographs, which sort of contradict my understanding of the class idea. Many other photographs showing an arrangement of three plants, whether in their individual pots or potted together, seem to be a better fit (many are also clearly single plants, which doesn't fit the class as well). Did the rules say anything about a submission of a single photograph?

Edit: I just found the official rules, and the class description just says "Succulents - three plants. Maximum pot size 30 cm", which is quite vague, but I guess the winner collage meets the definition. Maybe it would be better to clarify the rules a little, at least by making sure the plants are presented on a single, arranged photograph, which most seem to follow anyway?

I did notice that when uploading files, had a look at schedule to see if it included succulents.

I'm sure Gareth left it in as a test, I did just wash n curl its leaves especially.

Love this pot Class 4 E62 - Adansonia Digitata - Ravi Ivaturi

Some very nice plants that just aren't that photogenic, you also seem to get better photo's with smaller plants, this is good for more variety, like the pots on some of them.
We seem to have more people entering this time- well done all.

Plant I'd most like to adopt would be -Class 6 E69 - Euphorbia groenwaldii- Christine Bruno.

The three plants business is a little confusing last time I sent three individual photo's it seemed to get ignored.

Cant blame me this time :lol: Not going to name names but not my spreadsheet, all I did was concatenate the various fields to create the captions.

I have got access to the original emails so I will check what they say.
