2006 Shows Reports
Paul Barlow

This year we had the hottest/driest July on record, and at the time it was not clear how these extremes would affect the chrysanthemums. 

Many growers are of the opinion that the high day and night temperatures caused a slowdown in growth and bloom development resulting in later blooms than had initially been anticipated. Bloom size and colour did not appear to be particularly adversely affected here in Scotland.

These web pages contain a selection of pictures from the Shows listed on the left hand side. Most of the photos are shown in thumbnail form, just click on the small image to see a larger version of the picture, then click the 'back' arrow to return to the main page. 


The content of these pages has been greatly enhanced by the contributions of Ivor Mace, Harry Lawson, Doug Stewart, Tom & Maureen Buchan, Peter Fraser, Dave Holden, Jack Gilbert and Gordon Dowson - your help is much appreciated!

Please Note:
If you have pictures of other chrysanthemum exhibits from any of the shows already displayed here you can e-mail them to me and I will add them to the relevant page.
