Judge's Comments:

Generally, the entries were of a good quality although too few to be able to make comparisons in some classes.

  Class 53: - Dahlias
any  variety (NOT pom-pom) - 3 stems in one vase
Andrew Williams - 1st - Mixed Colours - Photo No.1
Joyce Reardon - 2nd - Cactus - Photo No.2
Leenie Hirst - 3rd - Orange - Photo No.3

Judge's  Comments:

1st -  Would have been better displayed if stalks had been longer and some  material in the bottom of the vase to keep the flowers facing  forward.
2nd -  Leaves showing slug damage. Not as brief.
3rd -  Some fine blooms but again some material in the base of the vase would  have displayed them facing forward.

Class 57: - A vase of mixed  Herbaceous Perennials
When entrants send in their photo of this Class they  should state the number of varieties and name each one
Joyce Reardon - 1st- Photo No.1
Achillea, Astilbe, Astrantia, Delphinium, Digitalis  Lutea, Francoa, Lysimachia, Penstemon, Phlox, Sidalcea, Verbena  bonariensis,
Veronica, Veronicastrum

Judges  Comments:

Commended - Not  possible to see all the varieties because of the way they were displayed in the  vase.

Joyce Reardon - 1st - White - Photo No.3
Andrew Williams - 2nd - Three Colours - Photo No.1
