A good day out! True to his word,Mike even divided some plants to order.
Even if he did take quite a bit of persuasion.
everybody went home with something,and i for one was very happy with my purchase.

Better and better every time.
You can never go away and say it wasn't worth the visit as there is always something to come away with.
Cheers Mike and Helen and all the regular folk.

Thanks to Mike and Helen for a good day as usual. Good company, a great collection and of course some new plants added to our collection ;)
Next year we will remember to bring the kids for Tim and John to play with.

No problem Dave, your more than welcome.
