This was my first visit to the Malvern spring fair the first RHS show of the year. The setting is stunning being surrounded by the malvern hills. The show was very down to earth totally unpretentious with friendly generous plant-people.
The showgardens were good though obviously dont have the same backing or money as Chelsea. On arrival we had the good fortune to see Joe Swift from GW filming, I think we ended up on the cutting room floor!
I found this show great as they have different plants and flowers due to the time of year and of course I had to buy!!
Purchases were mainly planned with one or two flights of fancy!
two different geraniums, both purple
clematis nelly moser
liatris-gay feather(had to get it)
