"We have hosted the Rose and Sweet Pea Show for the past
eight years and it has always been a great success. We are excited
to be staging the event again this year."
"Visitors will be able to see top quality roses and sweet
peas, as well as other cut flowers and pot plantos."
Categories for entries include roses, sweet peas, cut flowers,
pot plants and a kitchen garden section.
Peter added: "The show has proven to be popular with visitors
in the past and Im sure there will be something of interest
There will also be classes for large flowered roses, climbing/rambling
roses, miniature roses, vases and bowls of sweet peas and fuchsias,
begonias and pelargonium pot plants.
The organisers are not charging a fee for entries and the prizes
in all of the classes will be Sanders Garden World gift vouchers.

on the Saturday morning before the event is open to the public
and the prize-giving will be held at 12noon on the same day.
