A mild start to the year boosted the number of flower entries at the annual Burnham-On-Sea Horticultural Society Spring Show on Saturday (March 9th).

The event at Burnham Community Centre was a great success with 240 entries, well up on last year’s 150 when the ‘Beast from the East’ winter snow hit the floral classes.

Show Secretary David Bryant told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “In contrast to last year, we’ve had a mostly mild start to 2019 which has provided good growing conditions and this was reflected in the number of entries.”

He added: “There were some great floral entries, with some superb domestic entries too.”
