Exhibitors at Potters Bar and District Horticultural Society summer show created a cool oasis away from the heat on Saturday, June 23.
Elm Court Community Centre was bedecked with 184 entries of flowers, potted plants, vegetables, fruit and floral arrangements.
Visitors took in the display in between refreshing themselves with home-made cake and tea and browsing an array of home-cooked pies, cakes, scones and jams.
There was a selection of plants on sale, all offered with ready advice on how to tend to them.
Society vice-president Janet Towell presented trophies to Jenny Bertram for her roses, Frank Eldrett for his hanging basket display and for his roses, Mike Freakes for his potted plants and his sweet peas.
Chair Bryan Stutter said: “The show was a good representation of everyone’s hard work.”
Celebrating his victories, chairman Mike Freakes said: “All involved should be very pleased with the show.”
The society meets fortnightly for friendly and informal talks on all aspects of horticulture at Elm Court on Wednesdays at 8.00pm.
New members are made most welcome.
They are now gearing up for what they hope will be their biggest show of the year, on Saturday, September 15.
