STUNNING flowers and vegetables made this year’s Farlington annual flower show one of the best in its 27 year history.

More than 340 exhibits ranging from roses to dahlias, pot plants and vegetables kept judges busy at the Farlington and District Garden Club summer show at Drayton’s United Hall on Saturday.

Show secretary Joan Baker said: ‘The calibre of entries this year was incredible and everyone had a great time.

‘A few exhibits left a lasting impression on me, like the beautiful orange-pink begonias and nine different classes of dahlias that were all shapes and sizes – one of which was white with a gentle mauve shade.

‘The vegetables also looked incredible and I was lucky enough to take home one of the figs. It was delicious!

‘We’ve been going for 27 years but after this show people phoned me to say it was the best ever.

‘What I love best about it is the great community spirit.’

The prestigious Banksian medal, recognised by the Royal Horticultural Society, went to club member Gordon Fryers who entered several exhibits including dahlias.
