Grayshott Gardeners chalked up another triumph with Saturday’s Summer Show 2018. Despite the dry and hottest June for many years, there were masses of colourful plant and flower displays and mouth-watering fruit and vegetable exhibits. The Floral Arrangements were especially spectacular and admired by the many visitors to the Show, who had foregone Wimbledon and England’s bid for the World Cup in order not to miss this annual highlight put on by Grayshott Gardeners’ Show Team and the members who entered one or more of the 229 items in 76 different classes. The Juniors comprised a particularly strong contingent with their dwarf French Beans grown in jam jars (Open Classes), which augurs well for the future of Grayshott Gardeners.
Having enjoyed the sumptuous display, including entries for the Close Brooks Cup which Grayshott hosted this year and was won by Tilford with their box of beautifully displayed vegetables, visitors welcomed a cup of tea and a home-made cake served by the Catering Team, only to be waylaid by Karen and the Plant Sales Team with a tempting offering of plants. Free entertainment was also provided by Karen who had inadvertently given a lift to some juvenile frogs who played hide and seek in the tea room! Home-grown and very tasty cucumbers proved an additional attraction.
