Lavant Horticultural Society

Autumn Flower Competition

Wednesday 11th October

There was a particularly good display

in the dahlia classes and for the vase of mixed garden flowers.

By contrast, there were few entries of chrysanthemums, squashes and apples

Saturday 5th August

Lavant Memorial Hall was filled with an exceptionally good display.

The total number of individual exhibits at 400 was by far the highest of recent years.

There were also more exhibitors, just over 50, comprising not only members

but also Lavant allotment holders and other local residents.

The exhibits were of a high standard, with the vegetables & flowers

apparently unscathed by the rain & winds of the days leading up to the Show.

As usual, the Show attracted

a large number of visitors. 

Many stayed to enjoy tea or coffee and home-

made cake,some dodging the odd shower to

sit outside by the Village Green.

In all, a vibrant and enjoyable community event.

Flower Arrangements

The excellent flower arrangements over the

past few years have been created by a quite small number of members.

This year they maintained

the high standard, but were joined in this by three more entrants showing in these classes for the first time

Here are some of the exhibits.

Spring Flower Competition

8th March 2017

Link to Spring Flower Comp results

The number of exhibits was much higher than last year. Both daffodil classes were particularly prolific, as were the vases of mixed garden flowers. Camellias & hellebores had survived the rain and winds and entries surpasse anything seen in recent years. Congratulations to all who entered, for not only the number but also the quality of the entries.

Michael Kingsford won the overall prize with 1st place in 4 classes but the other prizes were spread among 8 of the 25 entrants.

Many other entries were worthy of winning a prize. The judge, Tim Woodland, had great difficulty in deciding on the winners in  daffodils, his specialist area. Likewise, the prizes for the vase of garden flowers and camellia classes were very closely run.
