Matamata Rose Society president Sue Clothier said that everyone involved put in a fantastic effort.
‘‘Nicola has done an unbelievable job and we appreciate our sponsors, volunteers and exhibitors too.’’ She said the entries were very professional.
‘‘These are dedicated show blooms. We know of people who put umbrellas over their roses so they don’t get rained on.’’
Her favourite sections are the bowls and baskets as she likes to see entrants getting a bit creative with what they do.
