Wrenthorpe Spring Show 3 April

[Info Wendy Akers, photos James Akers]

This was an excellent show with five entries in Class 1 for six blooms. First was Barry Hogg with ‘Ombersley’, ‘Honeybourne’, ‘Dailmanach’, ‘Demmo’, ‘Terminator’ and ‘Evesham’. J English was second and third Christine Yeardley.

Sue Vinden had a striking ‘Bossa Nova’ and a good double, which I had never seen before, ‘Jack the Lad’.

Best bloom in show was Ron Crabtree’s newly-named triandrus, ‘My Belle’.

  1. Wrenthorpe is a village, now part of the western suburbs of Wakefield and just in the famous rhubarb triangle. The gardening club which organises the spring flower show has quickly become one the most active village institutions. As yet though not many members are active exhibitors. This year however the number of entries in the novice classes showed signs of a growing interest which we hope will continue. The support of the Daffodil Society is much appreciated .

  2. It was good to see the growing numbers of novices. They might like some help with staging before next year’s show, but they look good.
