RHS Malvern Spring Show 2010

Best in Show, The Youth of Old Age - Graduate Gardens
The annual RHS Malvern Spring Show 2010 has come and gone and I had the pleasure of attending on Friday.  A full write up of the show will be posted on the Dobbies website and you can see the full post by clicking on the image at the end of this post.

I had a pretty good time all in all and met some great people at the garden bloggers meet up 'Meet@Malvern'.  Two plants have come off the plant wish-list and I'm pleased to report that no impulse buys were made!  I'm as amazed as anyone else.

For those of you who could not attend I have added a few pictures below.
The Woodland Edge Garden - Mark Walker
The Nature of Nurture - Beholders Eye (Deb Bird)
Hansel and Gretel Fairy Tale Garden - Foliation Ltd
ReSource Garden - Alison Miles with Avenue Landscapes

  1. Great to meet you, Ryan. Lovely photos - I'm amazed that you got a photo which seems to show blue sky (top one)!

  2. hey thanks for the photos ryan - I could not make it so really appreciate seeing other people's photos - you take a good shot!!! (promise I wont take any though ;))

  3. Your top photo almost has a Mediterranean feel about it Ryan despite the fact that it was freezing. Good to meet you albeit briefly :)

  4. Thanks for sharing your pictures of what looked like an informative and fun day!

  5. Great photos Ryan - I could not get there so I've been looking forward to everyone elses pics. I like those cypripedium aki.

  6. Glad you enjoyed the day, it must have been fun meeting up with fellow bloggers. No impulse buys? I don't believe it.

  7. The weather looks much better on Friday than Saturday!

  8. Ryan:
    I had to cross reference with your Wish List to confirm that one of the plants you found was indeed A. Sikokianum...... a wee bit of a warning. Keep a close eye on it - voles, squirrels and especially chipmunks seem to consider it a delicacy as well..... but to more devestating results! Congrats on your acquisitions!

  9. Thanks for you comments all.

    HappyMouffetard: Firstly, don't change your name! Secondly, I think there was a bit of luck involved in that. Every photo I took in the morning had a big black cloud in the background and when we had a little break in the light I made a quick dash off to take some pics. Loving your posts especially the Joe Swift Acme hair scarf.

    Anna: I was so cold that day! I think I spent more on tea than anything else. Was great to meet you too. Will have to do another meet up!

    Barry: I'm quite lucky where I am in that I have no squirrels and chipmunks are not wild here. I might get the odd vole though. Thanks for the tip!

  10. Excellent photos Ryan. How did you manage to get everyone to move out of the way when you took them. Most of my pics need significant editing to remove errant heads & trolleys.

  11. I don't like shows but, looking at the photos you Malvernmeeters are putting up on your blogs, I think this might have been an exception. The backdrop is impressive, the display gardens gentle and un-ostentatious. It doesn't seem to have been too crowded either. (Maybe because of the cold?)

    Glad you all had a good time.
