Vivien Clarke took the Gladys Butler Cup for some lovely flower arrangements, combining colour with simplicity, while Tricia Baldwin won the Butler Cup for the wonderful variety in her mixed garden flowers and the Adpar-Jones Cup for a single rose. Both the Garden Flowers Cup and the Fruit Cup were awarded to Gary Hicks, other cup winners being Jim Gray, Roger Wilde and Gwyneth Klemenz.
