Annual Plant Competition

Each year in March members can purchase a small plug plant.. The plants are then nurtured by their owners until August when we run a competition for the best grown plant.

In 2018 it was a Fuschia and we had a lot of entries with the full range of sizes, flowers and health on display. Thank you to everyone who brought their plant back, and made the competition so much fun.

Bernice Astling won the prize for the best Fuschia.. There was hot competition for the consolation prize with several impressively sickly entries but Paula Hallam clinched it with her very poorly little plant.. 'I can only grow vegetables' was her response.!

We hold shows in Spring, Summer and Autumn and a competition in August​​

Summer Show 4th July, 2018

We had  a lot of entries for the show this year: the Red White and Blue arrangement to celebrate American Independence Day was particularly popular. Our Show Secretary, Myra , went the whole hog with her American outfit. The members voted for classes 1-4 and 6. Pam Beedham judged the small arrangement, and Andrew Caine judged the Best in Show. Jenny took first prize again this year with her beautiful roses but Pam Beedham stole the show with wins for her carnations and exotic lilies.  Best in Show was won by Liz Watson for her Red White and Blue Arrangement. It was not the members' choice but Andrew judged it just had the edge.  Thank you to everyone who entered and congratulations to the winners. 

Autumn Show 6th September 2017

We had 85 entries for the show (four more than last year) which is excellent. Thank you to everyone who took part and our Judges Andrew Caine, Joyce Slatter and Diane Pearce . Congratulations to the class and cup winners. Chris Draper again won a cup for her dahlias as did Janet Lawrence for her floral art. New cup winners were Paula Hallam  for fruit and and Fiona Dowle who won two cups for her squashes and Jam. Well Done Indeed!  The Deputy Mayor presented the prizes and after the show members talked about their favourite plants - Lavender, Clematis, Alliums and Liquid Amber amoungst others.  It was a very enjoyable evening.
