The 2016 Lilium and Bulb show

The annual show week-end has come and gone for 2016.

The public really appreciated changes to the format of our annual show. In particular, a photograph of every bulb on offer was displayed in a prominent position, and where dormant bulbs were packaged, the label on the package included basic growing instructions and another photograph.

Various large photographs of liliums and other bulbs were posted around the walls, and near the bulb sales table, a large poster covered with photographs of a large range of stunning Day lilies was on display, advising that we have begun building our stock of these flowers for sale at a future show.

Jeff Boden took out the major award this year. More of his flowers can be seen on his personal page.

Nearly 800 visitors spent time browsing our exhibits and purchasing a range of various bulbs over the two days that we were open. Big things are planned for next year’s show, so keep your eyes and ears open for the exact date next January!

We had positive comments on the new layout, people said that it was much easier to move around the displays than in previous years. The lilies in front of the stage were a big improvement, and a great backdrop.

Members were presented with their awards at a dinner in the Aldgate Village Well rooms on February 3rd.
