Display of flowers at previous show

The Anguilla Beautification Club Annual Flower and Garden Show opens at 11.00 a.m. on Saturday February 25. Its theme is “A Garden, Nature’s Remedy for Stress” and the speaker at the opening is Joyce Kentish-Egan.  The show will continue on Sunday from 10.00 a.m. – 3.00 p.m.

 

The displays of flower arrangements and plants will be in Wallblake House and there will be several other displays on the grounds. The primary schools are competing with small gardens that they will assemble in the grounds and there will also be displays by CuisinArt Resort and the Anguilla Garden Centre. The Agricultural Department will again be displaying and selling a selection of vegetables and fruit.

 

A garden competition and home vegetable garden competition are judged during the week prior to the show. The gardens are judged on overall appearance and impact, creativity, balance, shape and colour and the diversity of plants and their condition. The vegetable gardens are judged on the condition of the fruit or vegetables, the absence of disease or scarring, the diversity of the plants, and the innovative and creative appearance.

 

There will be several stalls (at the show) selling plants, art and craft, garden supplies and products. There will also be food and drinks on sale.

 

The competition includes arrangements of fresh flowers in a vase, fresh flowers picked inAnguilla, arrangements of foliage, an arrangement of flowers depicting a sunset, flowers with fruit, and single flowers. The plant competition includes categories for flowering plants, foliage plants, cactus or succulents, oversized plants, and miniature gardens. The judges will be looking at the overall appearance and impact of arrangements, the condition of the flowers or plants, the artistic design, creativity, balance, shape and colour, and the suitability of the container. There are three sections—adult, junior (under 18 years) and professional.

 

All persons interested in gardening are urged to enter in the competitions and everyone is invited to come to Wallblake and view the exhibits.
