2020 Founders Cup

The Founder’s Cup is in recognition of two of our founding members, Alan Bray and J. McEwin. To be eligible you must have grown the plant/bulb from seed. It must be in its first or second year of flowering to be eligible, and photographed by the grower.

To produce a winning image, it is necessary to make sure that there are no distractions before taking a photo. Often these distractions are not noticed until after printing, or the flower has died, this then involves another twelve months wait to do it all again.

Thank you to all those who submitted photos and congratulations to Marg on her winning photo.
