Anyone been ?

This is the first year in ages I've missed it, same old problem I just don't have the space, so to avoid temptation I didn't even find out when it was on this year.
Only found out that it's been and gone from the Burnham's Newsletter today stating that they had received an award from the Show.

Too true Terry :lol: .....and I'm beginning to wish I hadn't started this Post because even Tom's comment has got me kicking myself for not going now !
I thought I'd just go and limit myself to a replacement for a Sedeira japonica and an old Dendrobium which is looking a bit "knockered" but I know that wouldn't have happened, and I'd have left the Show loaded down with all those bags full of plants, getting them home and sitting down to open all those tissue-wrapped treasures one by one........(now I'm just torturing myself!) :(

Don't kick yourself too hard, Steve. I was at a show this weekend where I chatted to two quite independent individuals who both said the RHS show this year was awful. Much reduced and several of the staple sellers were not there.

Thank you Richard, that makes me feel a little better about missing it this year :D
Although the way in which it's been getting to be a smaller Show each year, it's a bit worrying whether it's going to be there in a few years time when I'll want to go again ?
