Apart from the customary Cut Flowers, Pot Plants and Vegetable sections there are a number of other classes that would suit most peoples’ tastes and abilities. The main Floral Art title is “Over The Rainbow” and our men only title is “Royal Air Force 100th Anniversary” - so why not have a go? There is a good selection of classes in the Domestic Section including a “Beatrix Potter Tea Party” and a Carrot Cake.
