I plan to visit as show photographer, both of the Wisley Cyclamen Society shows taking place during the early part of the year. Here's a few photographic highlights from the Winter show - the full show report will appear in the Cyclamen Society journal. If you aren't a member, check out the website for details of how to join and take part in the most amazing seed exchange, you could be growing some of these superb plants?
The society has some fantastic growers and the best of the exhibits are detailed here.....

Crocus atticus (a Pelopponese form)
It's nice on occasions to admire individual flowers rather than a crowded pot!
