start to spring hits entries at Burnham-On-Sea Flower Show
weather led to a drop in the number of entries at Burnham-On-Sea's
annual flower show on Saturday (March 13th).
event, held at St Andrew's School, attracted 200 entries but the
late start to spring meant the overall numbers were down.
John Everitt, pictured above, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It
has been a very difficult year of weather for flower growers so
far and this was reflected in the overall number of entries at
the show. There were far fewer daffodils this year. I was impressed,
though, with the general quality."
David Bryant, of the Burnham-On-Sea & District Horticultural
Society added: "Entries in the cut flower entries were well
down on last year, and many of those that were entered were put
under heat lamps to get them ready. Considering the late start
to spring, we had a good turnout and are grateful to everyone
who supported it."
Mayor and Mayoress, Derick and Christine Cooper, were the special
guests at Saturday's event and presented the winners with their
trophies (pictured below). Joy Hutchings is pictured above with
her winning floral art entry.
