Horticultural Society Container Competition 2020

Results:
Judged by Graeme Hollingdale 4/8/20

Back to Hort. Soc.

- Winner - Alison Shreeve

This type of container requires all round colour and foliage also to cover the bottom of the basket, which is not easy. This one is almost all there – lovely worthy winner!

 

- Second place - Linda Taylor

This type of container requires all round colour and foliage, although I cannot see in the photos if the rear is as good as the front and sides, I have to take it on trust that it is. I particularly like the shape of the display.

 

- Third place - Alison Shreeve -- again !!!!

This type of container requires all round colour and foliage also to cover the bottom of the basket which this exhibit does very well. There is obviously a very small amount of damage towards the middle at the bottom, which gives the impression of a small hole in the display. Still excellent though.

 

- Highly Commended - Gerry Whisker

Unique. This container is of course a totally different style from many of the others submitted and in its own sub-category. However, I love the minimalism, striking colour contrast between pot, foliage & blooms. Very healthy specimen

 

- Commended - Ginnie Brudenell

Another completely different style of container. A lovely healthy rose with plenty of colour and lots still to come. With such a ‘heavy’ container, I think a contrasting trailing companion to soften would please my eye

 

- Commended - Les Hazel

A wonderful standard fuchsia enhanced by some contrasting petunias around the container. However, the container is still a little ‘exposed’ and as noted elsewhere, I personally do like to see some trailing plant material

 

Overall a delightful selection of containers, which was a pleasure to view and very challenging to judge!
