Be­go­nias the crown­ing glory for pub

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A VIL­LAGE pub is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter win­ning a prize for its flo­ral dis­plays.

The Stoke Po­ges, Wex­ham and Ful­mer Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety has given its an­nual Most Colour­ful Pub award to the Rose & Crown pub, in Stoke Po­ges.

It nar­rowly beat the Fox and Pheas­ant, also in Stoke Po­ges, to the prize.

Pres­i­dent of the so­ci­ety, John Ho­man, said: “Both pubs had su­perb dis­plays and ei­ther would have been a wor­thy win­ner.

“In the end we had to de­cide which dis­play had the most in­tense colour­ful im­pact and the large be­go­nias in the tubs at the Rose & Crown prob­a­bly made the dif­fer­ence.”

Other pubs in the run­ning for the prize were the Black Horse, in Ful­mer, and The Stag, in Wex­ham.
