Horticultural Society's early autumn show proves to be a quality event
Quality, not quantity, proved the order of the day at the Diss and District Horticultural Society early autumn show.
Visitors to Roydon Village Hall on September 1 were greeted by beautiful displays of dahlias and chrysanthemums.
“It was an exceptionally good show considering the weather so far this year,” said vice-chairman Ken Jolly.
“Entries were slightly down, but the ones we had were of a high quality; the vegetables were much better than we expected”.
The big winner on the day was Sylvia Grace, who scooped many first prizes across all classes, including the Diss Express Shield.
Other notable winners were Donny Andrews, Roly Copping, Graham Lanchester and Rosemary Smith.
The next meeting of the society will be in The United Reformed Church, Diss, today at 7.30pm.
Matt Long will give a talk entitled ‘bulbs galore: autumn planting for spring colour’. New members and visitors are welcome.
