Broadwey, Upwey & District show. 19 March 2016


Some quality exhibits were once again on show despite the awkward growing season.

Bill Howarth, as usual, saved the day in many of the classes that no one else could find a flower for including the difficult collection class of Divs: 5,7,& 8. The number of entries Bill contributes to the show is in itself meritorious.

The Best Exhibit in the show though was Ray Hayward’s entry in the six vase collection class with: Banker 2Y-O; Ombersley 1Y-Y, Truculent 3W-WWY; Rebecca’s Fire 2Y-YYO; Arleston 2Y-Y; and Ambergris Caye 1YYG-Y. The Banker in this entry was also Best Bloom.
Second was Eric Pickard and Third Bill Howarth.

Ray Hayward also won the Championship Salver class for 3 Vases X 3 Blooms, with an unusual combination of : Banker 2Y-O; Tao 3Y-O; and Warbler 6Y-Y. Bronze Medal for the Best Vase in Show went to Ray’s vase of three Banker.
Second was Eric Pickard and Third Bill Howarth.

Eric won the 2 Vases X 3 Blooms with: Strines 2Y-Y, and Resplendent 2Y-R. Bill Howarth Second.

The collection class of 3 single blooms was won by Ray with: Ombersley 1Y-Y; Truculent 3W-WWY; and Rebecca’s Fire 2Y-YYO. There was then only half a point between the Second and Third entries of Eric Pickard and Mark Read.

The final diploma being left to the judges discretion was awarded to Eric’s lovely vase of the miniature daffodil Snipe 6W-W, for being the Best Miniature in the show and Reserve Best Vase.
