RHS Malvern Show part three!!**Cacti** Carnivorous...Hostas..


Although we only have three cacti, you cannot ignore the quality of these plants, the stand is out of this world……

I rather liked the way the Hostas were displayed in the first photograph……

Paragliding off the beautiful Malvern Hills, the perfect day for it………
I do hope I am not boring you all to sleep……only another couple to go, promise lol

Oh last but certainly not least……

Show well done. Love the Cacti display. That last photo looks like "The Tree of Life."

That Olive tree is wonderful. It looks like it's been there for ever! And don't Hostas look amazing all together like do Heucheras of course! I always stand and stare at the carniverous plant displays...they are so 'other worldly'. And same with the Cacti. I don't grow them, but you can't just walk past these displays. The plants are so perfect! The only stands I find dull at Flower Shows are the stands dedicated to Fuchsias and Gladioli! Not that I don't like either of those plants at all...just find them a bit dull en masse.

Needless to say the hostas are my favourites, although a friend recently described my hostas as 'just green things'! Brookfield Nursery is only a few miles from me but unfortunately isn't open to the public except by appointment. On second thoughts that might be just as well, as there are several on my wish list :)
Hywel will love the cacti and they do look amazing massed like that.

Amazing Cactus collection and so colourful. I would have hard time choosing when they are massed like this.

Agree, the cactus display is incredible - never seen so many all in flower at the same time. I hope Hywel sees them.
Weren't the carnivorous plants displayed beautifully too?

Karen I do agree the Olive tree takes some beating.....I think Cacti Primula Auricula and Heuchera displays are the best......
