Beautiful blooms on show at Spring Flower Competition

THE Rose City served its moniker well yesterday as Warwick green thumbs offered up examples of their best blooms.

Perfume filled St Mary's Hall for the Spring Flower Competition and Australian Horticultural Judges Association's Anne Baster was impressed.

"There was a bit of discussion around the number one rose," she said.

"The residents and exhibitors have done Warwick proud."

The show coincides with the Spring Garden Competition.
