The Letham and District Horticultural Society’s Annual Garden Competition held on Thursday proved once again to be popular.
The competition attracted a large number of quality entries in all its sections, giving the judge, Mr Franek Janeczko, Kingskettle a difficult task selecting the prize winners with a good entry of gardens in most categories to choose from.
The tubs and hanging baskets all presented a riot of colour and range of flowers and the judge commented on the good use of both plants and colour in the displays.
The Landscaped Garden Competition as always proved popular with a large variety of designs and themes with all the gardens showing a vibrant display of colour, foliage and well maintained lawns.
The Vegetable Gardens provided proof of the quality, variety and quantity of produce the keen gardener can grow.
The hard work and enthusiasm of the competitors made it a rewarding day for the judge and the quality of the flowers and vegetables seen in the competition suggests their will be some close competition for those entering the 112th Annual Flower Show at Letham Village Hall on Saturday 9 August which opens to the public at 2.00pm.
Can we remind any entrants that our Cut Flower Section is an Open category to any resident within Fife. Any queries to Alison McDonald, Secretary Telephone 01337 810250.
