Bloom­ing good show on again

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Phone en­tries close at mid­day on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 18 and cat­e­gories in­clude open, novice, first-time exhibitor, spe­cial­ity classes, cut flow­ers and shrubs, plus ju­nior and in­ter­me­di­ate.

Tro­phies are avail­able for the ex­tra spe­cial blooms and Mrs Hawes said the judges are look­ing for two key things.

‘‘ It’s all about fresh­ness and sub­stance. The cat­e­gories are mostly roses but there are other sec­tions as well in­clud­ing cut flow­ers and shrubs,’’ Mrs Hawes said.

‘‘When you walk through the door, the colour and the scent will blow you away.’’
