    A few in bloom but no shows until September. Will they last!! The David Ott had 2 spikes & 6 flowers last time and only just missed out on a RHS award. Now 3 spikes and 11 flowers and a massive plant with over 14 growths. The Lady Isabel “In Charm” has come out better than I expected and the dorsal looks huge and quite flat. Awardable??. Plenty of potential in the "Hung Sheng Eagle". Very pleased with the outcome of all.

    They're all gorgeous, well-grown, and huge. Still, I think the Lady Isabel is my favorite.

    All are stunning, you have an eye for good quality hybrids. The P. Lady Isabell is superb

    That's a definite. I do need to improve on my photography to capture that extra detail.
    Will work on it.

    dont worry about superclose ups. The individual flower and whole spike or plant is much appreciated.

    All nice. Why wait for shows? Doesn't the RHS have monthly judging at centers like the AOS?

    They do Eric, but sometimes these are at shows and most are at the HQ I think which is a fair way from me and while I am work. The shows are a good way to show your plants to the public and they get jugded and awarded accordingly. If they are deemed good enough then yes you can put the plant forward for further consideration. The David Ott will be taken by a friend for an assessment by the RHS committee next week I think.

    All are very nice! The David Ott is impressively grown and a real specimen plant. The flowers of the Lady Isabel are eye catcher at least in my eyes.
