 Round up from the late Flower Shows

To finish off the year's photos from the Flower Shows, we have added those for Tatton Park and the Harrogate Autumn Show.

Tatton Park produced Gold Medals for Bowden Hostas and Mickfield Hostas, together with a Silver Gilt Flora for Sue Proctor Plants.

The year ended on a high with Gold medals at the Harrogate Autumn Show for Brookfield Plants and Mickfield Hostas, while the outstanding display from Sue Proctor Plants was awarded the prestigious Premier Gold Medal.
