Home brews, from Morello Cherry Vodka to King’s Orchard vin de noix (a muddy brown but delicious walnut wine) were the surprise stars of this year’s Flower and Produce show. Comparing cider to sloe gin is like comparing the proverbial apples and oranges – so, for next year, we plan a separate class for cider. Stock up on empty bottles ready for the autumn apple harvest now!

Entries held up well, despite the mercurial weather –the only disappointment being the lack of entries for our Popular Vote class (a jubilee crown). There were high standard entries for the Jubilee flower arrangement, though, with Josephine Butterfield’s design winning her the Win Glendenning Memorial Salver. Shena Luck had an ingenious solution to the problem of finding red, white and blue flowers in the garden by using the Queen’s racing colours instead: purple, scarlet and gold.

Our photo by Keith Brooks shows Paul Chilton, the show chairman, with some of the exhibits.
