Flower show won't wilt
AFTER a long summer with mixed rainfall, the Warwick Horticultural Society is confident that after 102 years of their Autumn Flower Show it will be another great event next week.
Warwick Horticultural Society committee member Shirley Olive encouraged Southern Downs residents to get involved by entering a plant or by coming down and supporting the show.
“If you think you have anything that is worth exhibiting, bring it down and have a go,” Mrs Olive said.
“Everyone is in the same boat with the heat and weather. The rain we have had recently should really bring things on.”
The sections for the event are roses; miscellaneous cut flowers; cut trees, shrubs and Australian flora; dahlias; cactus or semi-cactus; novice class dahlias; container plants; orchids; floral art; schools; vegetables and fruit.
Mrs Olive said if youhaven’t entered before it was a great time to give it a go, as she entered in one of the novice sections and has won many prizes ever since.
“It would be good to get more competition to make it more competitive,” she said.
There will be two days of great viewing, with dahlias expected to be in full bloom and heaps of tasty homemade snacks available.
Entries are accepted for judging from 8am to 10am on Wednesday, March 3 for judging until noon.
Doors open to the public for $3 from noon to 4pm on Wednesday, March 3 and 9am to 4pm on Thursday, March 4.
