Martinborough’s famous Rose & Flower Show – now late into its eighth decade – will have to wait yet another year.

I was pleased to have the opportunity for a small tour around the Town Hall and Waihinga Centre last week, and gosh, the old lady is looking stunning, albeit not quite finished! So November is out for events and our Show absolutely needs to be there.

But don’t despair, the small team of organisers will soon be starting plans for the BEST SHOW EVER in November 2019 and we urge all you show enthusiasts to do likewise. Gardening never stops, after all. The extra addition of the photo competition in 2015 will continue too, so budding photographers – keep up the shooting practice!

There were just under 400 entries to the 2015 show: let’s beat the record next year.

Just a note for anybody who still has trophies, could you please get in touch. Also any queries … though we here are all a tad rusty with show plans right now.
