Bloomin' mad to miss it

FLOWERS will carpet the tables of St Mary's Church Hall for the Warwick Horticultural Society's Annual Autumn Flower Show in March.

The show is hoping to attract more than 350 entries this year, with over a third of the entries expected to showcase dahlias - the popular in-season bloom.

Displays will also include roses, floral art, native shrubs and flora, pot plants, fruit and vegetables and a children's section.

Warwick Horticultural Society president Graham Gillam said high entry numbers were expected after excellent conditions this season.

He said this year's show was expected to be as spectacular as previous shows, if not better.

"Anyone who didn't turn up last year missed out on great displays," Mr Gillam said.

Avid gardener Merle Bamberry said she was planning on entering a couple of cut flowers in the show, despite storms late last week wreaking havoc with some of the gardens.

The show will open on Wednesday, March 7 from noon-4pm and Thursday from 9am-4pm.

Registrations are open until 10am, Wednesday March 7.
