2008 Shows Reports (updated 02 January, 2009 )

Paul Barlow - Early National 2008

We all remember 2007 as perhaps the wettest year in living memory - what would 2008 hold in store?  Most growers were generally pleased with conditions until mid/late July when the weather took a downward turn with many parts of the country experiencing even more rainfall than 2007! 

In the Northeast of Scotland we probably escaped the extremes suffered further south and to the west but August in the northeast was the dullest month for almost sixty years.

White rust has again been problematic in some areas but not the the same extent as in 2007. 

These 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.
