Fab five for dahlia man
A MAN who grows dahlias won multiple first prizes at the Eastcote Horticultural Society flower show.
Kewal Seedher, of Deanecroft Road, Pinner, won five first prize certificates for his dahlias, as well as a silver medal for best dahlia exhibit, a rosette for best exhibit and the GH Bickerton Cup for the overall highest points in the dahlia section of the show.
His flowers also received two second prize certificates and one third prize.
Mr Seedher has been growing dahlias for 22 years and enters the flower show every year. Last year he also won eight prizes.
He said he was ‘very happy’ with his win and his secret to growing flowers is simply to ‘look after them a and feed them properly’.
The Eastcote Horticultural Society holds three shows a year, one in spring, one in summer and the autumn event which was held in September.
Shows are held in Oak Hall at Eastcote Community Centre, Southbourne Gardens, Eastcote.
