Show opens at 3 pm.  Prize giving and raffle at 4 pm.

Home made refreshments available.
Vegetables
The show has classes for most vegetables and salad items.  There is a specific class for novices that only needs 3 kinds of vegetable and general class with 4 kinds of vegetable.  This isn't a show that's about showing the biggest or longest items, so anyone can enter and stand a good chance of winning.
Flowers & Arrangements
As well as classes for perennials and roses, there are classes with annuals or pot plants, as below: 

You may already be planning to grow these or perhaps will now consider it.   Many of these are easily grown by children in a small plot of earth or pot.
There are 4 Flower arrangement classes:  Miniature; container; table arrangement; and this year’s exhibit arrangement will be advised shortly.
Cookery
As well as items that can be made nearer the time we have classes for preserves, chutneys and pickles, home- made wine and fruit liquors that need to be made in advance.  Of course not only does the show benefits from the sight of these lovely provisions, but your family gets to enjoy them!
Clavering Horticultural Society is happy to provide advice and guidance to new or more experienced gardeners who have never entered a show before.  Full details, a schedule listing the classes or answers to any questions can be obtained from any of the committee members.
