It was quite surprising that, even after the freezing early spring and the long heatwave and drought, entries were at a very good level and of very good quality. From 2012 to 2016 the total number of individual entries had hovered just under 300. Last year there was a big increase to 400. This year beat that record with 414. The number of exhibitors was about the same as last year at just over 50.

Spring Flower Competition

Wednesday 14th March

After the onslaught of the "Beast from the East" the surprising thing was not that entries were down on last year, but that they had held up so well, especially the daffodils and the hellebores.

This year's new class, Flowering House Plant, was introduced to avoid the effects of inclement weather, so it was pleasing to see that it attracted some good entries.

The overall winner of the Competition was Michael Kingsford; however, all 16 entrants, several participating for the first time, made a valuable contribution to an encouraging display.
