SOUTHPORTS annual Spring Flower Show will be celebrating its 60th anniversary this weekend at the
Botanic Gardens Banqueting Hall.
Along with the hundreds of floral exhibits on display, there will be a variety of competitions open for
everyone of any ability to compete in from flower arrangements to cake baking.
In a statement from the Southport Chrysanthemum and Gardening Society, they said: This will be a
comparatively rare opportunity to view so many different varieties of Daffodils together, most of
which will be labelled, so you can take notes for your own garden.
The society will have a variety of special craft classes, including egg decorating, Easter bonnet
making and creating greetings cards.
Submission deadlines for floral arrangements are 48 hours before the day of the show.
Themes for this are; Inspired by Nature, Caves and Contraband, Under the Sea and Through the
