PRESTON GARDENING SOCIETY
SPRING SHOW
Tuesday 21st March 2017.
The largest number of entries for ten years made this year's competition an excellent one!!
Eighty-nine entries, across 8 Classes were received for this year's Spring Daffodil Show, despite the best endeavours of some awful weather that we've had to endure during the past several weeks.

A selection of views of the entries in last night's Spring Show.
......and below is a photograph of the winning entry for the Society-sponsored 'Ice King' Daffodil class:-

This is the choice of bulb for the 2017 Spring Show.
It is our intention to give SIX bulbs to each member of the Society, that they can prepare for exhibition.
