Horticulture Competition


There are classes for “cuts” of native flowers, garden shrubs and trees, (cuts, meaning stems or branches in flower). Camellias are one of the many species of flowers entered for judging. Camellia blooms are arranged on show benches, each year novice and expert growers, stage the result of a year’s passionate culture and nurturing of their beloved Camellias. There will be experienced growers available to give expert cultural advice on the growing of orchids. Bonsai enthusiasts will be vying for top honours, as this year’s the Show welcomes an interstate judge. There are three showings of Bonsai, so to see the best of deciduous and evergreen Bonsai a second visit to the Show is recommended. The Junior and Teenagers Sections of Creative Floral entries, fruit, vegetable and pot plant classes have continued to attract a terrific number of entries and are always very popular from the public’s perspective.

Due to restrictions regarding Fruit Fly, any entries composed of fruit and vegetables will not be able to be taken home and will be responsibly disposed of.
