Pillaton Gardening Club Spring Show
Pillaton Gardening Club's annual Spring Show on 24 March was another delight to behold and the daffodil section, divided into trumpet, large cupped, small cupped, double, split corona, cyclamineus and miniature varieties were all supported.
Best in the Show went to Christine Dunn who also won the Dan du Plessis cup for most points for daffodils. The Dan du Plessis Memorial Trophy for most points gained by a Pillaton Parishioner was awarded to Chris Barwell. Dan was instrumental in cultivating daffodils at Landulph and is always fondly remembered at this time of year.
The Dunloe Shield for shrubs went to Linda Mavin who with varying success in other sections, won the shield for most points in the show.
The Angove Trophy for adult floral art was shared by Sue Archer and Nan Doughty.
Sadly, we had no junior entries this year and urge all families to get involved. Our hedgerows are beautiful but there's nothing quite like seeing and smelling natures first blooms gathered in the one room.
Many thanks to our judges Richard Hosking, Maggie Murray and Richard Harnett and to all entrants and visitors.
