Ebrington and District Gardening Club - Annual Spring Show

Saturday 5th April Ebrington Village Hall - Entries staged from 09.00 - Public Viewing from 14.30

A true village show to celebrate the arrival of Spring and to show off the colours and freshness of spring flowers.

Fourteen different classes for Daffodils and Narcissi so you have got to know your Trumpet Daffodils as opposed to your Large-Cupped Daffodils which are different to your Split Corona Daffodils which are not the same as your Short-Cupped Daffodils. All these daffodil types have one flower to a stem and are therefore not a Triandrus Daffodil which has three flowers to a stem. Classes for these daffodil types are all part of the show.

Tulips, Hyacinths, Hellebores, Heathers, Camellia, Polyanthus, Pansies, Cactus , Succulent, Auricula and Amaryllis all have classes plus three Flower Arrangement classes entitled - "Enlightenment" "Silver Wedding" and "The Cruellest Month."
