The Cardinal Browne Hall in Grangemockler became a gardener’s paradise last Sunday for the Glasha Flower & Garden Society’s annual summer show.

Gorgeous displays of summer blooms from roses and dalhias to geraniums and wild flowers filled the hall as their growers vied for honours in the show’s 40 competition classes.

Gardeners were tested in their green fingered skills at producing the most impressive cut flowers, shrubs, flower arrangements, hanging baskets and window boxes and there were classes for children in wild flower arrangements and miniature gardens. Food contests were also part of the show with classes in jams, cakes, bread, eggs and apple tarts.

Glasha Flower & Garden Society will celebrate its 30th birthday next year. It meets on the second Monday of the month at 7.45pm in the Cardinal Browne Hall . The Society says it always welcomes new members.
