    Hi Frank,

    Many members either attend flower shows, visit gardens locally or on vacation that exhibit a broad spectrum of botanical interests. When new members join they are often unaware of these excursions made by members. I suggest a separate forum as a repository for horticultural shows, arboretums, botanical gardens and the like where members new and old can visit/revisit gardens around the world at their leisure.

    I'm sure Frank will find a way to add a forum like this for us if it's at all possible. I think it's a great idea and would help so many of us especially if we're thinking of holidaying in another state/ country.

    Very interesting. How about a sub-forum under Member's Gallery called 'Garden Visits & Flower Shows'?

    I just found a Blog entry from 2007 with photos of the 2006 Chelsea Flower Show. Would posting a link to Blog entries work too?
