Lynne Dibley wins international award for horticultural excellence.

Lynne won the Reginald Cory Memorial Cup at this year's prestigious annual RHS ceremony, which recognises people who make exceptional contributions to horticulture. This award recognises both horticultural excellence and personal endeavour and is recognised internationally as one of the highest accolades in horticulture. RHS President Sir Nicholas Bacon offered his congratulations to everyone receiving an award.

RHS Streptocarpus Plant Trials

Here are some images of the Royal Horticultual Society trials at Dibleys Nurseries and the judges on their second visit. There is one more assessment in October left, and a good number of the plants are performing well. The plants have all come from plugs which were potted into 10cm pots in early June, and then re-potted into 13cm pots in early August.
Especially looking good are Scarlett and Roulette Azur.
