Breckland Flower and Garden Club
More than 60 members and guests enjoyed a lively demonstration by Brenda Tubb at the November meeting. Her superb designs started everyone thinking of Christmas as they included baubles and a hint of glitter as well as a wonderful selection of foliage (some courtesy of a supermarket gardener) and roses of different shades. She also regaled us with tales from the days when she worked in a florists and of her husband’s efforts at soupmaking.
The competition entitled 'Advent' was won by Shirley Penfold in the Old Hands class and Janet Skidmore in the New Hands class. Janet also won the monthly cup for best use of garden plant material.
The table show was won by Shirley Penfold by half a point.
The meeting on Thursday 8 December at Old Buckenham Village Hall will start at 1pm for the workshop. Those attending should please bring a table cover and rubbish bag, scissors/secateurs, a dozen 2 inch ivy leaves and no more than a handful of cupressus - all other ingredients will be provided (free of charge). There will be afternoon tea so also bring a small plate of cakes.
The competition title is 'The Christmas Story' and for the table show it is 'Three stems of seasonal foliage'.
