That really is dedication Eric! Thanks for the additional information. What a shame about your Daphnes. They were very mature plants, weren't they? I recall photos in your WPG's.

I'm very grateful for your WPG presentations. I hope to get back to all things gardening soon, and when I do I'd really appreciate another CD.

Keep up the good work Eric!

Finally managed to get the pictures from The East Cheshire Show on line.

I have missed out one plant on the list, the picture is there but not the page about it. Is there anyway of adding that page without uploading the whole thing again? If not then I shall leave it out.

Great job again Eric.

Are you still getting the 'weird lighting' issues at the indoor events, or have you got a work-around in place to sort it out - i.e. in camera or in post-production with Photoshop?

The only show with poor lighting is the one at Loughborough and no one has ever managed to cure it, so no pictures from there I am afraid.

This one I really like Eric:
Anemone demissa

I wonder if it is easy to grow as A. blanda?

Now those I have tried and.............................failed. There is a lovely nursery in Slack Top (Hebden Bridge of Hovis fame) which sells them. Expensive too.

Thats a pity Eric. I like a splash of silver foliage in the garden. The good old Lambs ears (Stachys byzantina) are easy and do the job nicely in my garden, and the bees and butterflies love them.

All Erics WPG projects, presenting his collections of Alpine Garden Show photos, have now been added to the main page on the web site reserved for users of Ideas Genie Pro.
Heres the link: http://www.ideasforgardens.net

I'm very grateful to you for sharing your photographs in this way Eric.
I'd like all visitors to be aware that this required much time, effort and skill to present to us in this way - taking the photos at the show (its much nicer to stroll around and enjoy in a casual manner), uploading and sorting the photos out by name, making the WPG projects and finally uploading by FTP (with a very slow internet connection) to the server shared by our forum members.

Thank you so much Eric!

I hope he can join us again soon Eric, when he gets a better connection to the internet.
He is sorely missed here :(

I have just added the pictures from the last show we went to in Tewkesbury. Cannot remember how to go and look at it though to see it it worked properly. Long time no do is my excuse.

Magnificent!! and welcome back once again Eric :)
I'll link them up shortly.

Another great job and some very interesting plants.
Have you ever tried Tulbaghia? I had some in a pot, set outdoors in summer, brought into cold greenhouse over winter, but they "expired" in the winter of 2009-2010 (not our hard winter of 2010-2011!)

We lost the one we had last year, when we lost almost every bulb in pots.
