WHILE flowers may be a little shy this year, that won’t stop the Kyabram Garden Club’s Annual Spring Flower Show from coming to town, bringing plenty of colour with it.
The event, held at the Kyabram Town Hall, will see local green thumbs gather to display their horticultural handiwork.
Proceeds from the day will go to the local Parkinson’s Group and the Community Centres Quilting Group (which makes quilts for people in palliative care).
“The flowers have been late to bloom this year, but we’re sure it will all come together on the day,” club member Macdermid said.
“This is the garden club’s main event and is a great promotion for gardening in Kyabram.
“It’s also a fantastic chance to showcase the beautiful plants in town.”
Local gardeners are encouraged to bring flowers, pot plants and floral art for display.
The show will also feature the people’s choice Annual Floral Art competition, with prize money of $50, $30 and $20 up for grabs.
“There are no set themes and everyone is welcome to enter,” Mr Macdermid said.
Trading stalls will be selling orchids, irises, roses, and jewellery, with Ratcliffe’s Garden Machinery Cam exhibiting a range of Stihl battery-powered garden equipment.
Expert gardeners will also be on hand to share some sage advice, with Graham Sargeant from Silkies Rose Farm and orchid-expert Arthur Tippet among the top names.
And Fab Flowers will have a range of fruit fly traps for sale.
The Annual Spring Flower Show will be held from 10am on Friday, October 13 at the Kyabram Town Hall.
Entry is $3 and Devonshire tea will be available.
The hall will be open on Thursday, October 12 at 1pm and Friday, October 13 from 7.30am until 9.30am to receive entries.
