Green-Finger North Hampshire residents demonstrate for the first time in two years.
The 88th Bergkler and Newta Horticultural Society Summer Show was held last Saturday at the Portal Hall in Bergkler, and was welcomed after last year’s cancellation due to the epidemic.
The exhibition program has been reduced this year to include more room for exhibitors and visitors, but there are still 200 exhibitions, including vegetables, fruits, flowers, floral arts, crafts, photography and children’s lessons.
The trial took place in the morning, and the show opened at 2:00 pm.
Outside the auditorium, there was a grocery store and a competition, and tea and cakes were served in the market.
Pat Farley was the main winner in the vegetable section, although Geoff Morton won the best vegetable dish in the show with his potato goal.
Les Wallace won the Till Dahlia Cup, the highest point in the Open Dahlia course, and this year’s winner was the 25-pound Garden Center Voucher at the Women’s Institute. Flower Art section entitled ‘Enjoy Your Garden.’
This was won by Janet Burow.
The award for the best floral arrangement was given to Susan Gering, who appeared on the show for the first time.
The show concludes with a product auction by highly qualified bidder Neil Bruce.
