The theme of the 21st annual exhibition, Bulbs: Preparing for Spring, acknowledges the essential and under-appreciated role of the bulb in the development of spring flowers. To most, the bulb is unremarkable when compared to the showy flower it produces and nourishes. However, botanical artists have the skill and appreciation to reveal the intricacies and hidden beauty in the bulb and stages of its flower’s growth.

Hyacinthus orientalis by Elaine Searle is the winner of the Bourn Award for distinction with an emphasis on horticulture.
