Dave Manston and Tony Beard with their winning cups and certificates

Tony Beard and Dave Manston swept the board with their displays of daffodils at Wimborne Horticultural Society’s spring show at the Allendale Centre on 9 April, winning most of the cups and certificates between them.

Exhibitors produced a wonderful display of spring flowers, pot plants and floral art. All classes were well supported with exhibits up on last year. One special display – a new variety of narcissus – won best exhibit in class 60. It was created by a grower in Cornwall. Together with a certificate from the RHS and 25 bulbs, Anthony and Christine Oliver have had the narcissus named ‘Wit’s End’, the name of their house. This was a present from their daughter for their 75th birthdays which they shared last year.

In the handicraft section there was a class for knitted bonnets which will be donated to the Baby Unit at Poole Hospital. Pam Shrubb won the Finlay Shiner Shield for best exhibit in this section.
