DAFFODIL SOCIETY SPRING FLOWER & GARDENING SHOW
Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th April
Springfields Events & Conference Centre
The Lincolnshire Daffodil Society, in association with the charity, Springfields Horticultural Society have come together to help celebrate Lincolnshire’s daffodil flower and bulb growing heritage. The Event will include competitions for daffodil enthusiasts, schools and other groups, as well as further classes for digital photo and painting entries in a range of age categories as well as “fun” competitions for pallet gardens, veggie sculptures and veggie mosaics. Other exhibits and displays will include a landscaped show garden entered by the gardening team from Springfields Festival Gardens, and a display of bowls of daffodils from Chelsea gold winners, Walkers Bulbs.

The show organisers are inviting gardening equipment suppliers, gardens designers, landscapers and growers to exhibit and sell to the enthusiastic gardeners who attend the show. Indoor trade stand spaces of 3m x 2m are available as well as plots for the construction of designer display gardens or special features. Additional outdoor space can also be made available for larger equipment or for exhibitors with their own display marquees or portable exhibits.

For more information on trade stand space or the pallet and veggie competitions, or for any other information, please contact the Show Administrator, Inga Maxwell at Springfields Horticultural Society on 01775 724843 or email:  admin@springfields.net

Scented Gardens & Tulips

Tom Hart Dyke wants to convince us all to grow tulips. He visits Spalding, which used to be the heart of tulip growing in the UK. He discovers the turbulent history of the broken tulip which four hundred years ago brought an economy to its knees, and lends a hand to one of Britain's last large-scale commercial tulip growers in Norfolk.
 
Tom Hart Dyke speaking to David Norton (40mins - 47mins in the program)


Autonomy Raffle

Autonomy Ladieswear at Sringfields Outlet Shopping Centre held a raffle for late night shoppers to win a coat of their choice. Tulip Radio's Jan Whitbourn was the lucky winner and soon hurried down to Autonomy to pick up her prize.
