Green day for Potters Bar horticulture winners

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.

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.”
