WE ARE BACK! Annually we organise our Open Flower Show, featuring the National Begonia Society’s South West Regional Show. This year is really special as we will also host the British Championship for 5 pot of Tuberous Double Begonias and the National Society Championship for 12 Blooms of Tuberous Double Begonia. A unique occasion for this being held away from the National Show. We also have TV celebrity David Domoney from ITV’s Love Your Garden where he is the presenter with Alan Titchmarsh and he also provides This Morning with gardening advice and features. He also writes a weekly column in the Sunday Mirror and Daily Express and Grow Your Own gardening magazine.
2016 was a big milestone for your show marking our 50th Show staged every year since 1966 but cancelled in 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions. Don’t think it is just Flowers. The Show has sections for Cacti, Pot Plants, Cut Flowers, Vegetables, Fruit, Children’s exhibits, Handicrafts, Cookery, Needlework and for Disabled or Special Needs exhibitors. To mark the 50th Anniversary we re-introduced a Floral Art Section with great success. Our new schedule is now available so please request a copy. A link will be available nearer this time. As you can see from the pictures in the gallery below we have a vast range of sections to enter and it brings exhibitors from all over the South West and South Wales. We really do need lots of Children’s entries so please promote this to your family and friends. Our last show we were able to hold in 2019 was the best attended for several years and even proved profitable.At this show we did our own afternoon teas with great success and thanks to Sharon, Jan and all who helped.
