Photos and results: Burnham-On-Sea 45th Horticultural Show

Hundreds of gardening and craft entries went on display at Burnham-On-Sea and District Horticultural Society’s 45th annual show over the weekend.

While the number of entries was down on previous years due to poor gardening weather in recent months, the judges said they were impressed with the quality on show.

The event took place over two days at Sanders Garden World in Brent Knoll, ending with a prize-giving ceremony on Sunday afternoon.

The entries ranged from floral art and handicrafts to photography, flowers, fruit and vegetables.

Burrnham & District Horticultural Society Chairman Bert Sone told "Numbers of gardening entries were down about 25 per cent due to the poor growing conditions, but there were some good quality entries and attendance was excellent."

He thanked all those who had entered and congratulated the winners, who are listed below.
