A tennis racket made an interesting centrepiece in Christine Richards’ winning entry. The exhibits were admired for not only their appearance and colour, but also their smell.

The Hibiscus Coast Garden Club held its annual flower show in the Whangaparāoa Hall on November 19.

A total of 70 exhibitors submitted entries in a range of sections from garden vegetables to flowers and floral art.

Jackie Mitchell won the Champion of Champion Rose with her bloom ‘Maggie Barry’.

Best in Show in the flowers and foliage section was Jane Deacon with a magnificent magnolia and Best In Show for floral art was won by Christine Richards.

Winners were chosen by six judges from Auckland and Warkworth.

Show secretary Annabelle Guthrie says feedback from the judges was all very positive.

“They commented on the high standard of entries and how much they enjoyed judging the Hibiscus Coast show,” she said.

The club, formerly known as the Whangaparāoa Horticultural Society, has been running the show for 52 years and follows Auckland Horticultural Society traditions.
