Sunday 12th. August,  The Pannier Market,  Bideford

   The area show, held in conjunction with the Bideford & District Cacti & Pot Plant Club (its 41st show) was held at the Pannier Market, Bideford, North Devon on Sunday 12th August.  One of the smaller NBS shows it certainly attracts some quality exhibits. This year numbers were up by around 10%; and there were some new exhibitors which holds good for the future.  It was generally agreed that the benchmark of quality, demonstrated by the entries of a National Champion, who supports the show, is leading to superior plants and blooms.  It illustrates what members can learn by attending a NBS show with the advice and camaraderie freely available.
