This was our first RHS Show. We attended this two-day event for the first time staging a Lindley Exhibit and were awarded a Silver Medal. Feedback from the Judges was really helpful and we will put this to good effect when we do our next Lindley Exhibit and Hampton Court in July 2018.
Importantly it was a chance to engage with the Public and get their reaction to British Tall Bearded Irises and to Bryan Dodsworth’s Irises in particular. His is an interesting story and this resonated well with those visiting the Stand. We sold some plants and harvested contact details by asking those interested to complete the Contacts Form with the possibility of earning the right to Name an Iris.
