|Spring Show 2004|
|2004 gets off to a bright start with the first of our shows this year. Many thanks to all who exhibited & helped & the many people who attended. Class entries were good at 282 but our cup winners would still like to see more competition in the daffodil section! There was still a good showing of daffs and it's a treat to see (and smell!) such a wide variety in one place. Well done to the winners!|
|We were joined by the Alpine Garden Society (central Sussex group) this year who put on a fine display of alpines and perennials.|
They were kept very busy during the afternoon answering questions & demonstrating growing & sowing techniques and we hope to see them at a future venue.
Rhubarb & leeks proliferated in the vegetable classes as usual at this time of year.
|An interesting newcomer to the show classes this year is the RHS 200th Anniversary class - a basket or trug full of seasonal goodies! Tricky to achieve in the Spring but our entries were very successful and we look forward to more entries in the summer and autumn shows. There is a good financial incentive to enter this class (many thanks to Millbrook Garden Centre for sponsorship) so we're looking forward to some exciting competition!|
cookery classes were well contested with some delicious looking cakes and preserves
(we do envy the judge!). Floral art & the children's competitions had a
seasonal note & the handicrafts & the photographic classes were excellent
Well done to all who entered!
