Phil you did well, When you have a Daphne that looks that good on the day it's not luck but dedication.. you must be well pleased.
Intrigued by the Tropaeolum the grower must have wound it around in circles for about two months to do that.
mine is still in flower just starting to fade ,been out at least six weeks better value than a few Iris that lasted little more than a day, like them but a lot of work for such a short flower.

My other one,'Tichborne',is a picture of health too,just not a single flower.
It was only Friday,that I knew for sure what I would be able to take,and Saturday morning decided on what to leave behind.
If It had been today,I may have had a better chance at the 3 pan,as my Anchusa decided to open more flowers and an Arisaema that I like unfurled its spathe fully.However the winning entry of 3 Lewisias was very nice.
I was very lucky to get the award for best plant in novice,as the member who won the best in show,for a huge Orchid,was the same as the one who beat me in the 3 pan.Luckily he put that in the open class and had to be persuaded to do that,as he was going to leave it in his car.
