Fife Flower Show -Part 3 - Cut flowers


The exhibitors at this years show gave their flowers plenty of TLC to put on this glorious display. First flowering shrubs and what do you know 1,2, and 3 were all hydrangeas.

For so late in the year the roses were lovely

there was vases of annuals, biennials, and perennials and mixed vases

Flower heads on boards are a well known way of displaying the flowers only. A box is made up with holes in the lid to drop the flowers through into a source of water stored below. They had some lovely pansies and violas on display.

and gladiola

I have more photos but they will need to wait for another blog.

Fancy those Hydrangeas all having prizes. They must have read your recent blog lol :D
There was an unusual Dahlia in ons vase - looked like a brown centre, then green then pink ... I liked that one.
They all looked so fresh and colourful.

I'll try and put up a question, maybe someone will id it for you Hywel. I had to look twice to id it as a dahlia I thought it must be something else. There was a wide selection of flowers. Thanks Diane.

I have only shown a small selection of the photos I took because the blog would be too long otherwise. I do hope you have a show near you Bloomer where you can enjoy a lovely day out. I only had about an hour because we had been to Inchcolm that day. Its great to see what is grown locally especially for new gardeners.

Beauties on show here Scotsgran, although I felt a wee bit sorry for the little pansy heads, lol, enjoyed your blogs, thankyou...

What a wonderful display. How hard the growers must have worked to nurture the plants through such a year.

I was relieved to read that the violas were in water! I thought at first they were pinned on like butterflies in old collections!

Hywel I got an answer to the question I posted. Scrumpygrat thinks it is a zinnia. I think she is right but I was unable to pin down which.
