Com­pe­ti­tion blooms at gar­den club show

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

SPRING is in the air and the Twin Towns and District Gar­den Club will em­brace the sea­son with its an­nual Flower and Gar­den Show.

The show will take place at Tweed Heads Civic Cen­tre from 8.30am-2.30pm on Saturday, September 16.

Rhonda Pet­ti­grew, one of the show’s co-or­di­na­tors, said there would be cut flow­ers, pot­ted plants, flo­ral art, pho­tog­ra­phy and pro­duce on show.

She said mem­bers of the pub­lic were in­vited to ex­hibit along­side the gar­den club’s mem­bers at no cost.

Ms Pet­ti­grew said ex­hibits would be de­liv­ered on Friday ahead of the judg­ing, which would put the re­gion’s best green thumbs to the test.

“There’s a lit­tle bit of a friendly com­pe­ti­tion,” she said.

“As well as the beau­ti­ful dis­play of the ex­hibits at the show, other at­trac­tions are the large se­lec­tion of rea­son­ably priced plants from club mem­bers.”

There will be flavour­in­fused honey, a bees dis­play, her­itage seeds, pot­tery and more on of­fer.

“This show pro­vides a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to buy spe­cial gifts as well as top­ping up your gar­den with qual­ity, rea­son­ably priced plants,” she said.
