Tattenhall Gardening Society Annual Show Sunday 1st September 2019

The weather has been awful, very wet, followed by very hot; what will have survived in the garden for the Show?

We will all be suffering the same problems , so your chance of winning could be higher!

So — Tips for showing:

  • Pick flowers and especially roses a few days ahead in bud and bring them into a cool place in the house. Roses will then open a little and not be damaged by the weather.
  • Pick dahlias before the petals have curved backwards and then they will last.
  • The requirements for the vegetable class are that there should be identical items, same length, same colour, as much as possible. Pick beans a few days ahead and wrap in damp newspaper, this may also help flatten curling runner beans.
  • The judges look for perfection, but if you can't do that there is always the amusing veg category!
  • And read the schedule which clearly states the what is needed. If it doesn't meet the requirements of the schedule your entry may well not be judged!

  • Or if Gardening has defeated you this year, with wind rain and floods-
  • Take a photo,
  • paint a picture,
  • do something crafty,
  • cook something delicious, still time to make jam, but use a new lid, label and date.
  • take part!

  • Its fun, and you can meet lots of interesting people!
