Claremont set to bloom

THE seeds are sown and the flowers are ready to bloom for this year’s annual Claremont Daffodil, Camellia and Spring Flower Show.

Held from 2-3 September at the Claremont Memorial Hall, the show will host a wide range of spring flower and unique floral art displays, with the Lenah Valley, Glenorchy and Claremont Garden Clubs exhibiting some of their finest flowers.

Categories will include pot plants, Australian natives, floral art, cut flowers and containers of flowers, including both daffodils and non-daffodils.

“From the early photos on social media of some very impressive daffodils, judges will have their work cut out for them,” Claremont Flower Show Group secretary Stan Walker said.

“In addition to the daffodils, there will also be a strong influence from the camellia growers.

“We expect some 700 flowers at the show, with sections open to both members and non-members and between both daffodil and camellia growers.

“For the show’s competitive classes, the open section and seedlings raised class entries will be benched at high level, international standards and the quality of the flowers is normally very high.”

Other displays will include a children’s section and a heritage daffodil display by Rod Barwick of Glenbrook Bulbs.

Camellias Australia Inc. national president Joe Neuschwager will conduct the official opening and trophy presentation on Saturday 2 September at 2pm.

A number of plant stalls will be on display and raffles, lucky door prizes, tea and refreshments will be available across the weekend.

Entry for the general public will be via a gold coin donation.
