IT had been a difficult growing season, but it didn’t stop a bumper-load of exhibits at the Potters Bar and District Horticultural Society’s annual autumn show.

Potters Bar and District Horticultural Society

* The society is open to anyone interested in gardening and gardens.

* Meetings are held fortnightly on Wednesday evenings at Elm Court in Mutton Lane, at 8pm.

* For more information or a copy of the programme of events, ranging from talks to demonstrations, call secretary Ruth Ackerley on 01707 665101.

A total of 204 different items were on display at the Elm Court Community Centre in Mutton Lane, from 22 members.

A society spokeswoman said it was a “real achievement”.

She said: “As well as an impressive and attractive display of late summer flowers, there was a particularly wonderful display of dahlias and chrysanthemums.

“Also to be seen were plants in containers, a wide range of vegetables and fruit, and floral art.

“The entries in the domestic classes provided a tempting array of home-made goodies.”

She added: “The show was very well-attended, and had a lively, friendly atmosphere.”

Prizes were presented by society president Tony Harrison, who said he had been very impressed at the high standard of the show, and the excellent quality of the exhibits.

The society also welcomed members from Potters Bar Flower Club, who joined with them to stage their annual autumn show of floral arrangements.
