Spring Flower Show
The Society holds a Spring Flower Show on the first Saturday in April and a summer show on the first Saturday in August. The shows are held in Nailsea School, Mizzymead Road, Nailsea.
The 2017 Spring Show was held on 1 April in Nailsea School.
On a lovely Spring day over 300 people came to see the show which included a fantastic display of daffodils and other flowers and plants, cookery, handicrafts and photography. There were also excellent examples of children’s handiwork.
The show had more entries than last year, with many more entries in the daffodil classes due possibly to the favourable growing conditions of the past few weeks.
Expert grower Ivor Clark from Alveston scooped many of the prizes with his first-class daffodil blooms but there were lots of other exhibitors who helped to set the highest standards. Nailsea horticultural society member Terry Miller managed to bring lots of high quality daffodils from his garden in Wokingham and won the overall prize for most points in the daffodil classes.
Visitors enjoyed teas and home-made cakes while being entertained by the Filton Concert Brass Band.
Reports of the show and photos were published in the Bristol Post, the North Somerset Times and Nailsea People
