Lindfield Horticultural Society Summer Show: The King Edward Hall was full of wonderful flowers, vegetables and soft fruit for the LHS Summer Show. Visitors were amazed at the height of Neal McNamara’s deep blue delphinium spikes, and the size of the pitchers on George Adams’s Pitcher Plant. But to prove that size is not everything there were eleven teacups with delightful arrangements of garden flowers in them, with the visitors being invited to vote for their favourite one, which was not an easy decision to make. In the end Jane Harding’s entry gained the most votes.
In the Flower Arranging classes there were some stunning entries, which truly were like works of art. Claire Wilson’s interpretation of “Wimbledon” was much admired and unsurprisingly gained her a first prize. Combining flowers, fruit and vegetables were the garden trugs filled with all three, which not only were a visual delight, but also stimulated your appetite. Ian Cooper’s twelve pea pods accomplished the difficult feat of being truly identical, and Tim Richardson showed some superb potatoes.
One of the cookery classes was to decorate a cake to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the LHS. Gill Jones and Glenise Buck each entered such magnificent cakes that the judge could not decide between them, so jointly awarded the first prize as well joint best entry in the cookery classes.
If you have never been to one of our shows try to get to the Autumn Show on Saturday 12th September 2pm to 4.45pm in the King Edward Hall.
