Sweet Pea Photographs

The small pictures we have used to illustrate and enliven the light-background pages of the web-site can be loaded quickly. Even with broadband, it can take a while to bring larger photographs across the Internet to the computer screen unless quality is compromised. When we have a better-quality original available, you can see it by clicking on the small version in situ. It may take a little while for it to arrive the first time, but so long as you don’t delete your temporary Internet files, your computer will probably remember it for the future.

We will keep on adding newer pictures to our two slide shows, Portraits and Assortment.  Most of the Portraits are recent and of better quality than in earlier editions, while the Assortment has a wider range of more casual photos including one or two nice flower arrangements. The picture quality is better than that of the small pictures in the web-site pages, but has still been compromised to allow showing reasonably quickly.

Wisley 2014

Caroline Ball, Editor of the NSPS Annual and annually outstanding in our photo competition,  made a fine collection of pictures during the 2014 RHS / NSPS Sweet Pea Open Day in the RHS garden at Wisley, Surrey.

Caroline has graciously allowed us to show a selection from her day’s work. There are pictures of a few of the trade displays, while outside conditions were good and the trials were in full flight, so the pictures give you a good idea of how things look during the famous Wisley Trials.  It is interesting to see the bush-style clumps being judged and then the close-ups of the varieties on trial.  The large plantings of dwarfs, rarely seen in Ireland, are really impressive too.
