RHS Show, Tatton Park 2014 July 2014
Once again we put on a stand at RHS Tatton and were delighted to win another Gold Medal. Our standards are now repeatedly very high and the judges give us very complimentary feedback.
   
RHS Show, Tatton Park 2013 July 2013
This was our greatest year at RHS Tatton; not only did we achieve our 5th Gold Medal, but also the award of “Best in Marquee” (National Plants Societies), with a plaque and large engraved glass rose bowl which we were very proud to exhibit with the trees on our stand.

RHS Show, Tatton Park 2012 18 - 22 July 2012
Following on from last year's gold-medal-winning stand, we decided to enter a similar arrangement this year. This must have been the right decision as the judges awarded us our 4th Gold medal , following those in 2008, 2009 and 2011. The stand design featured 3 tokonomas, as well as a number of trees displayed individually.

Shrewsbury Flower Show 2010 13 - 14 August 2010
We attended Shrewsbury Flower Show again this year, entering both the Society class with our main stand, and also members entered the individual classes.

We weren't awarded a place for our stand, but achieved a few 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in the individual classes. So all in all, still a successful event for us.
