Ar­dr­ishaig Flower Show and Kin­tyre’s tro­phy win­ners

Campbeltown Courier - - BUSINESS -

THIS sum­mer’s poor weather may have been chal­leng­ing for some green fin­gered gar­den­ers, but there was no signs of that at the Ar­dr­ishaig Flower Show.

Held on Fri­day Au­gust 18, the 66th an­nual show saw stun­ning ex­hibits from bud­ding new gar­den­ers to the cream of the crop ex­perts. And an ar­ray of tasty treats and crafty creations in the bak­ing and craft classes.

Com­mit­tee mem­ber Neil John MacLean com­mented: ‘This year’s show re­ally has been ex­cel­lent. The com­mit­tee are de­lighted with the amount of en­tries and pro­duce on show.

‘The schools have re­ally ex­celled them­selves this year and it is great to have them in­volved, as they re­ally are the fu­ture of shows like this.

‘It has also been bril­liant to see the ded­i­ca­tion of gar­den­ers, with folk com­ing from fur­ther afield, even as far as Ben­der­loch, to en­ter.’

San­dra Gal­braith from Car­radale is win­ner of the Corona­tion Cup for roses, Don­ald Moir Me­mo­rial Tro­phy and the Gar­den news top vase, among other prizes.
