Here are some of the arrangements made from the buckets of flowers picked yesterday. Judging is happening as I type...the arrangements have to be done to fit a title: this first is "pots of sunshine"
Next, 'modern twist"
"special celebration"- I'm thinking wedding...
and finally the competition for the Dorlen Cup- you have to make an arrangement of plant material from your garden/allotment and it has to show a wide range - shrubs, annuals, perennials etc.. For the other classes you are allowed to use shop flowers, I feel this is not really cricket and stick to home grown only, which in a year like this with rain for several days before the show, means a bit of a challenge to find sufficient good quality material to use.
