100th Cupar Flower Show 100

Horticulturalists in Fife will be congregating in the Corn Exchange in Cupar next weekend to display some of the best flowers and vegetables in the area. Celebrating its 100th anniversary, the Cupar Flower Show has arranged a special 2-day extravaganza over the weekend of Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th August.

With talks, demonstrations and trade stands being a new feature at the event, the main attractions will still be the fantastic variety of exhibitions in flowers, fruit and vegetables, floral art, handicrafts and needlework, baking, photography, wine making and preserves. There will also be exhibits by the younger generation showing off their skills at designing/painting, cookery and flower planting and arranging, also a special class for the primary schools in the local area to create a collage on an “eco-gardening theme”, and a kids group competition to create a “superhero from recycled materials”.

It’s not too late to enter! If you enjoy gardening; have a nice patio ornament or hanging basket, maybe a collection of flowers, grow your own fruit or vegetables then please give consideration to entering this very special flower show. This is an amateur show that is open to everyone, of all ages and experience. The schedule can be downloaded from www.cuparflowershow.co.uk – entries can be taken right up until 9.30pm on Friday 26th August in the Corn Exchange, Cupar. We are trying to encourage as much interest and participation from as far afield as possible, so if you have any family or friends that you think might be interested in exhibiting or attending the Show, please forward this email or tell them to visit the show website or call Wanda Wheelans on 01334 654648 for more details.

JIM McCOLL will open the show and host a gardener’s question time along with Leslie Bisset and Peter Christopher later on Saturday afternoon. If you have any gardening questions, then here is your chance to ask the experts. If you have any plants, weeds or others that you wish to be identified, then these should be handed in to the Secretary prior to 1.30pm on Saturday; items MUST be placed in a sealed polythene bag to help prevent the spread of disease to exhibits within the show.
There’s a full programme of talks, presentations and continuous craft demonstrations throughout the weekend, as well as trade stands covering gardening services, societies and other products.

The Show is open to the public from 10am-6pm on Saturday 27th and from 11am until 5pm on Sunday 28th August in the Corn Exchange, Cupar. Admission is only £3, Concessions £2 – tickets are available for pre-sale from Scotts of Cupar, Bonnygate or from Wanda, or entry at the door.
