Annual flower show hits the mark, again
Residents have been flocking to the Balls Plantation, Christ Church for the Annual Flower and Garden Show organized by the Barbados Horticultural Society.
On day one of the two-day activity, more than 700 people entered the society’s headquarters to witness the vibrant, innovative floral displays.
One of them was Lady Belgrave, wife of the Governor General, who was visibly impressed with some of the displays and even purchased items.
But it was not only about the flowers as businesses that sell other products also have booths.
“We have vendors that we invite to come and sell their plants, their pots, anything to do with gardens,” said Jennifer Weetch, the coordinator.
“They’ve always been very supportive. The members get the chance to showcase their interests, whether it be orchids, fruits and vegetables, ornamental plants, ferns and it’s a wonderful time for them.”
The show is the society’s main fundraiser, with the monies raised used to maintain the property.
