Dahlias were just one in­gre­di­ent to popular au­tumn flower show

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

DAZ­ZLING dahlias were back in fash­ion at an an­nual au­tumn flower show.

It wasn’t just the flow­ers steal­ing the lime­light at the Ick­en­ham and Swake­leys Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety au­tumn show.

The Vil­lage Hall in Swake­leys Road was packed with colour­ful dis­plays of plants and flow­ers, but ac­cord­ing to the so­ci­ety’s vice-chair and hon­or­able show sec­re­tary Patt Trigg, the most popular class was the men’s cook­ery chal­lenge.

“Dahlias showed a great resur­gence in fash­ion and our veg­etable grow­ers also con­trib­uted many fine ex­hibits,” Mrs Trigg said.

Adult and ju­nior pho­to­graphic classes were packed with en­tries and the ju­niors didn’t let the side down in their hor­ti­cul­tural sec­tion ei­ther – with crea­tures made from fruit and vegetables popular among the judges.
