New Zealand: Flower show marks 40 years

The best daffodils that gardeners around Winton have meticulously cultivated will be on display at the town's annual flower show this weekend. Convener Daphne Batt said it had been four decades since the Winton Garden Club Spring Flower Show began, and it was only getting better.

Daffodils were the main feature of the show because people had been growing them very professionally, she said. "They're very fussy, and when they pick their flowers and display them, they really titivate them a lot.

"They sit there and look at them from all angles and make sure the petals are all in the right place." Mrs Batt said last year's show had about 1100 entries for flowers, and she was expecting just as many this year.

She said although there were a lot of entries from professional growers, there were plenty of entries from novice growers who wished to display pickings from their gardens as well.
