Charlbury Garden Society

Spring Show 2022

Spring Show (in combination with the Art Society Spring Exhibition)

09th April 2022 noon to 4 p.m.

  • Memorial Hall
  • Brown's Lane
  • Charlbury

This coming April, we have high hopes that we will be able to hold our usual Spring Show in conjunction with the Charlbury Art Society Spring Exhibition.

Shows are open to everyone!

The Spring Show can be a wonderful sight. Segregating daffodils into different classes shows their variation and subtle colour changes to best effect. Don’t forget the other classes especially tulips and flower arrangements. Plant material for the arrangements (classes 14-18) need not have been grown by the exhibitor.

There is one cup to be awarded at this Show, the Ian Tolputt Cup, for the Best Exhibit in the Show. There is no prize money.

The plan is to open the Show at 12 noon, immediately after the judging.

Children's Corner

Our children are the gardeners of the future so we aim to encourage them to have a go at growing flowers, vegetables, salads and herbs from seeds or bulbs. The children's classes, therefore, include at least one aspect of 'growing', plus some craft or cookery.

Some entries will need to be planned for or prepared well in advance!

There will be two age groups for judging the children's categories: 4-7 years; and 8-12 years.
