Bloom of the Month

* NEW FOR 2024 * 


Welcome to our new monthly competition for members - a chance to show off the best bloom we have in our gardens month by month!  Members are encouraged to bring a flower with them to the monthly meetings.  These are staged, ready for judging!


One of the non-participating VDHS members is selected as a 'guest' judge, and they have the task of choosing 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. The winner is awarded our special "Bloom of the Month" trophy!

Points are also awarded which members accrue over the year ; 4 points for 1st place, 3 points for 2nd place and 2 points for 3rd place.  1 point will be awarded to all the others taking part.  Points are totalled up over the year and a special prize will be awarded at our Autumn Show to the member who has the most points overall!
