En­tries blos­som at hor­ti­cul­tural show

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

MEM­BERS of Ruis­lip Cen­tral Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety are cer­tainly a hardy bunch.

One of their mem­bers flew in to Heathrow, from Seat­tle, at 8am on Satur­day morn­ing and by 10.40am he ar­rived with his pho­to­graph, scones, Vic­to­ria Sand­wich and pot plant to ex­hibit in the spring show.

Af­ter fears in the weeks lead­ing up to the show there would be no daf­fodils thanks to the mild weather, mem­bers dis­played a fine se­lec­tion along with a va­ri­ety of pot­ted plants such as Hy­acinths, Or­chids, a Wollemi pine and Camel­lias.

The and Suc­cu­lents ex­hibits at­tracted the at­ten­tion of the en­thu­si­ast as well as quite a few novices who were keen to buy plants to

Cacti start their col­lec­tion.

In the Do­mes­tic cat­e­gory, the recipe for the boiled fruit cake en­ticed quite a few mem­bers and the Flo­ral Art sec­tion pro­vided in­spi­ra­tion to many.

The Pho­to­graphic and Hand­i­crafts sec­tions also saw an in­crease in the num­ber of ex­hibits, many of a high stan­dard.

Prizes were awarded by Les­ley Crowcroft, chair­man of the Friends of Eastcote House Gar­dens who praised all the en­trants.
