This year's open day was the best so far and approximately 30 people attended from as far afield as the Netherlands. Many people had plants for sale and I'm sure everyone was awed by Mike's mammoth collection. There were some rare Sarracenia on show, including S. alata black tube, S. leucophylla 'Hot Pink' and 'Titan'. Everyone was kept well fed and watered by Mike's wife and a healthy supply of Grolsch! Many forum members attended including Richard (RichardUK), Brendan (flook1e), Stephen (garden of eden), Phil (padedeji), Mike (Efikim), Ross, Vic Brown, Suzy. Apologies if anyone is missing!
The weather was also kind on the day and virtually everyone left clutching boxes of new plants. Richard has taken some photos with his digital camera, which I'm sure he won't mind me posting.
