Society - 17th September
In spite of the year the show was well
supported with a fine show of chrysanths and dahlias from North East
growers with very little room left on the benches. The chrysanthemum judge was
Dennis Morrice from Fraserburgh.
The results from the chrysanthemum
classes are detailed below. The Aberdeen Championship for Large blooms
requires three vases of five blooms of at least two cultivars. Just one
this year from Paul Barlow with an exhibit that included vases of
Billy Bell and two vases of Lynn Johnson.
The Aberdeen Champion of Mediums requires
three vases of five blooms of at least two cultivars, again just one
entry in this class. Paul Barlow's entry consisted of Lemon Rosa Hockedy,
Joyce Frieda and John Wingfield. This entry was judged Best Exhibit and
the Joyce Frieda was selected as Best Vase in Show.
The Press and Journal Trophy class
requires six vases of three blooms in at least four cultivars. Two entries
this year from Paul Barlow and Ian Gerrie.
In the spray classes Society Secretary
Donald Buchan won the class for three vases of Natural Sprays,
In the local Growers class for three
vases of three blooms Jim Craigen's entry took first place. In the open class for three vases of three
blooms Paul Barlow exhibited Woolley Globe, Millennium and Cream John
Wingfield to win the class. Donald Buchan and Murray Reid also exhibited
in this class.
Single vase entries in disbuds and sprays
were well supported by all growers.
