The Spring Show is one of the highlights of the Gardens Association year and, while we are beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel, we are unable to meet in the Memorial Hall so we’re holding our Spring Show online again.
We would like to encourage all CSGGA members and members of the CSGGA Facebook Group to enter at least one class and we hope everyone will find something they can enter, perhaps a beautiful tulip or a stick of rhubarb, a foliage pot plant or a flower arrangement. It’s about entering for fun - you only need a camera and a computer, iPad/tablet or iPhone/smartphone.
Examples of some of last year's winners are shown on this page. While it is for fun, the paid up member of the Gardens Association with the highest score will win, the Edwards Cup and the RHS Banksian Medal will be awarded at our next meeting!
How to join in
Click on the class you want to enter and you will be redirected to PollUnit where you can upload your photograph.
You should be able to upload photographs direct from your computer, iPad/tablet or iPhone/smart phone.
You do not have to register on PollUnit, you can join as a “guest”, though you will be asked for your email address.
Your photograph will be added to the PollUnit gallery once approved by the moderator - currently your Chairman - so be warned, this could take up to 24 hours!
Closing Date Monday 5th April, midnight. Results will be published on the website and in our Newsletter on or shortly after 8th April.
