    FSTP:
    They sprayed water from time to time on the plants. Rob told me they were in shock from the journey and all, but they seemed to be holding up really well.

    Amazing pictures, shokuchuu.

    I love the N. Veitchii, Truncata, and Hamata in particular.

    Also a N. Truncata (HL) for $18 [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] . Very very nice catch.

    Hi Amori,

    very nice pictures! The plant labeled N. talangensis doesn't look like N. talangensis - most propably it is a hybrid.

    Cheers Joachim

    I figured so, too Joachim! I was surprised that they would have a talangensis that big already, and looking closer, it closely matches talangensis x maxima...

    Amori:

    Thanks for providing a "window" to press our noses against for those of us who were unable to visit the show and see the interesting BE display.

    The plants look both beautiful and superbly-cultivated, and the Cantley's certainly deserved the recognition and award that the RHS bestowed on them.

    What was your take on the visitors' response to the Neps on display? Is it your opinion that BE sparked real interest in their plants from "gardeners"? As you know, Neps appear to be heading mainstream (almost) in the 'States; what's the situation in the UK like now?

    Again, thank you for sharing these great images with us.

    Hi Joachim
    That's what I thought too. There were N. talangensis x maxima plants right next to those ones so it's most probable that they are what you say they are. Thanks for pointing it out (let me use this as an opportunity to say that I have always loved your website!)!

    SJ:
    As for the situation of Neps in the UK... Hmm, I only just moved back here so I wouldn't exactly know. Growers on the CPUK forum would probably be able to give you are good answer.

    Sorry, me and Joachim kind of spliced posts... He originally suggested that it wasn't what was said. I then chimed in about what it is. Joachim, you're not losing your mind! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    EDIT: I looked at the pic of the whole display and did the simplest thing: read the tags. It is for sure talangensis x maxima, as is the plant next to it! (no, I didn't enlarge it or anything, just straight off of PFT) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
