The London Group have again put on a colourful display at the RHS London Shades of Autumn Show, displaying a wide variety of plants donated by individual and corporate members.  The kaleidoscope of colours from the orange/red colours of Autumn to the purple Asters resulted in a well deserved Silver-Gilt Flora award.  See photos below.
