Lots of little boxes

Breckland Flower and Garden Club
Boxes, boxes and more boxes was the theme at August's meeting. Five committee members were each given a box of plant material and a container - all previously unseen - from which to create an arrangement. From a great variety of flowers and foliage five quite different designs, both traditional and modern, were produced.
The monthly competition was for an arrangement in a box. The New Hands class was won by new member Susan Thurlow with Janet Skidmore second. The Old Hands class was won by Shirley Penfold, second was Ursula Jackson and Sylvia Briggs was third.
The table show was for three stems from the border - first prize went to Shirley Penfold's gladioli with Sue Blackett second and Shirley Betts third.
The next month's meeting will take place at Old Buckenham Village Hall on Thursday 9 September commencing 2pm when Nick Grounds' demonstration title will be ‘Flotsam and Jetsam’ and the competition title ‘A Seascape’. The table show will be for any one flower, fruit or vegetable 'harvested' from the garden.
