Hi Chris,
The shows, I believe, are the highlight of Club calendar year. The potential of a show is huge. The opportunity of seeing fellow members' plants. There is no time available during the flowering season to visit other growers or members do not get invited to other collectors' homes to view their plants. The opportunity of networking with growers when wishing to acquire certain plants. An opportunity of selling excess plants of good quality. Some do it for commercial reasons. Buying literature on the cultivation of Clivia, getting advice on pests, diseases, potting etc. The Clubs have the opportunity of encouraging potential members or the general public to be educated about Clivias. The number of gardeners in the country are limited and so the few that are interested should be encouraged to plant or collect all plants - Clivia, Orchids etc. As far as entering plants on  the show bench are concerned, members should not be intimidated, there is a category for all. Provide a clean, disease free plant of good quality and anyone may win a class.
Visitors to a show are attracted to the wide variety of flowers or non-flowering plants on show, but they also wish to purchase unusual coloured flowers from the sellers. The sellers of today provide almost every colour pattern and variety that is available.
The shows are here to stay and hopefully will get better with each passing year.
Regards,
Glynn
