Stunning display from the Chelsea Team winning Gold and runner up to best exhibit in Floral Section.
The theme was "Depicting The Solar System"
Please Note recent changes to the trophies below
The Solar System is the inspiration for the Society's floral exhibit this year. Drawing on a vibrant array of chrysanthemums the exhibit seeks to explore the vast variety of planetary objects in our Solar System. The exhibit centres around a central golden display of "Sunny Euro" and "Yellow Lollipop" representing the sun itself. Then using the hues and colour combinations of over 25 cultivars, a selection of planets and moons are depicted around this central piece.
It is with sadness we have to inform you of the passing of
