West Berkshire charity Thrive hosted its annual flower show last Thursday, with the fiercely contested competitions attracting people from across the region.
It was held at their base in Beech Hill, which saw a range of beautiful floral displays, creative collections of vegetables and fundraising stalls among the entertainment.
The competitions featured 15 classes, including the best summer bouquet in a vase, the best decorated pot, miniature garden in a seed tray, and a new category for this year, stick
Entries came from the client gardeners at Beech Hill and the charity’s Birmingham centre, along with local care homes and special schools.
Medals were presented by Thrive’s chair of trustees Faith Ramsey, who said: “The flower show was a wonderful occasion, bringing people together and encouraging gardeners to show their skills.
“It’s always so difficult to judge, the standard gets better every year and the effort that goes into creating the entries is brilliant.
“I’m looking forward to next year already.”
