Daffodil and Spring Flower Show

Orange’s cool climate blooms are expected to draw in visitors from as far as Canberra, Lithgow and Cowra on Saturday.

Orange and District Horticultural Society members will host the Daffodil and Spring Flower Show, which will boast a large variety of flowers.

This includes more than 15 types of daffodils and a diverse range of colourful camellias.

Show secretary Yvonne Tracey said this was an ideal opportunity for gardeners to seek advice from the experts.

“There are always experienced people around to help,” Mrs Tracey said.

“If you bring something in, some of the people will show you how to grow them to their best advantage.”

Mrs Tracey said with a diverse display of flowers and a floral art competition, she expected the show to be a worthwhile day for all.

“It’s a big day but it’s really enjoyable. We all discuss what we’re doing,” Mrs Tracey said.

“There’s some really top of the range stuff. People from all over Australia come to compete in shows around cool climates.”

The colourful display will also include hyacinths, spring flowers, bulbs and pot plants.

Floral art will be judged by members of the Orange and District Horticultural Society.

The criteria will include the flower’s form, condition, stem condition, colour and how it is presented.

Admission is $3 per person and children’s entry is free. Afternoon tea is $5 per person.

The show will be held at St Barnabas Hall from 1pm to 5pm. Contact: 6362 3249
