Dahlia and Gladioli Show to open at Brent Knoll garden centre

A Brent Knoll garden centre is holding a show dedicated to some of the country's favourite flowers this Wednesday and Thursday (August 18th and 19th).

Sanders Garden World will be holding a Dahlia and Gladioli Show when experts from the National Dahlia Society and the National Gladioli Society will be on-hand to offer advice.

Representatives from the two societies will be at the centre on Wednesday from noon until 6pm and on Thursday from 9am until 4pm.

Peter Burks, General Manager of Sanders, told "We're celebrating two of the nation’s favourite flowers. They have been less popular in the past few years but are now back in fashion as cut flowers and inspire fabric and other designers worldwide."

"During the two-day show, visitors will have the opportunity to see a variety of dahlias and gladioli on display as well as get tips on looking after the plants."

The centre is also hosting competitions during the show when classes for both the dahlias and gladioli will be judged on size and quality.

Peter added: "The competition is open to anyone and entrants should bring their flowers along to the garden centre from 6.30am on Wednesday in time for judging at 10.30am."
