VIRTUAL SPRING SHOW

Entries for this year’s Virtual Spring Show can now be uploaded to the website.  It is simple to do and the instructions can be accessed here. Here are the entries so far:

All entries need to be in by the end of Saturday 10th April, ready for judging on the Sunday.  Once your entries have been submitted, they will need to be moderated, so there will be a slight delay before they appear on the website.  There will be certificates awarded for the first, second and third place awarded in each class.

Here is a reminder of the 7 classes.

Class 1 – pot of members’ bulbs ‘Narcissus Anniversary Gift’ (photographed still growing in the pot they are planted in)

Class 2 – a vase/container of mixed daffodils (any number)

Class 3 – a vase/container of mixed spring flowers

Class 4 – a flowering shrub (picked or in situ)

Class 5 – a bowl or pot of spring bulbs or flowers (photographed growing in the pot they are planted in)

Class 6 – one flowering or foliage houseplant

Class 7 – daffodil with the longest stem (to be photographed next to a ruler or tape measure to indicate length in cms)

Please join in with your entries and let’s hope that next year’s spring show will be a normal one!

VIRTUAL SPRING SHOW 2021

This year we would like to build on the idea of a virtual show that we had last year, but make it a bit bigger and more of a competition.  Obviously, we can only judge photographs of your entries but it will be lovely to see what is growing in everyone’s gardens.  Entries need to be uploaded directly to our website and we will explain how to do this once this once details have been finalised. We will not judge to our normal rules as it is just for a bit of fun so we will award certificates to the first, second and third placed in each class.  For some classes the flowers will need to be picked, but for others we are happy for you to photograph them in situ, in your garden.  We are not judging the quality of the photograph, just the plants or flower.
