ENTRIES were down at Worthing Horticultural Society’s autumn show.
Held on Saturday, September 1, at Offington Park Methodist Church hall, in South Farm Road, Worthing, the difficult growing conditions this year were reflected by the lower number of submissions.
Anne Locke, from the society, said: “Despite this, the society was very pleased with the colourful show and the flower judge remarked that some of the entries in the chrysanthemum and dahlia classes were of the highest quality and were some of the best of the many shows he had already judged.
“Once again, Linda Charman almost swept the board with her entries, winning the most outstanding exhibit in show, most points in the mixed flower classes, best rose exhibit, best pot plant, Garden News top vase, best cactus, and most points in the flower, fruit and vegetable classes.”
Other winners were: Kent Kressner, best chrysanthemum entry, best vase of chrysanthemums, best chrysanthemum bloom and most point in the chrysanthemum classes; Alan Humphrey, best exhibit in the dahlia classes, best vase of dahlias and most points in the dahlia classes; Christine Fry, second best vase of dahlias and the best exhibit of gladioli; John Jordan, best exhibit of fruit; Janice Shambrook, most points in the vegetable classes, and Michael Innes, most points in the cookery classes.
