Knoll Rose and Sweet Pea Show proves a blooming success
turned out to see displays of roses and sweet peas at an two-day
festival at Sanders Garden World in Brent Knoll over the weekend
(June 11th and 12th).
The centre provided the venue for a Rose and Sweet Pea Show organised
by members of Burnham and Nailsea Horticultural Societies.
Peter Burks, General Manager of the garden centre, said: "This
was the eighth time we have hosted the show and it was a great
success. We received lots of entries and hundreds of visitors
came to see the displays."
"People were able to see top quality roses and sweet peas,
as well as other cut flowers and pot plants."
There were also classes for large flowered roses, climbing/rambling
roses, miniature roses, vases and bowls of sweet peas and fuchsias,
begonias and pelargonium pot plants.
