My most memorable show to date for several reasons. The weather for most of the show was perfect, after weeks of cold it turned warm and sunny and people flocked to the show. Our plants were in great condition and sales exceeded our previous record.
The Brookfield stand at Malvern
Late on the afternoon of the third day there was an impressive thunder storm causing a torrent of water to rush through the floral marquee. By the next morning it was all cleared up and we had another good day.
The other memorable incident occurred on the way to the show at 4.30 in the morning on the M4 when it transpired that the van was a little over weight, as they say; there’s never one (policeman) about when you want one
