Judge’s Overall Comments.  Judged by Valerie Best National Judge, Adjudicator and Instructor

‘A very good class of pave exhibits, generally well defined.  Care needs to be taken to finish the edges of containers and many exhibits were not necessarily indicative of the class title.’

First : Peter Bodnar, Ealing Flower Club

Third : Sunita Kanoria, Pushpabitan Friendship Society

Very Highly Commended : Nimita V Shah, Kenya FAC

Judge’s Overall Comments.  Judged by Valerie Best National Judge, Adjudicator and Instructor

‘Exhibits portrayed a variety of ways to create a palisade exhibit, some designs very loosely and some more definitive.  Finding a way to incorporate fencing into a design is not easy.  Any type of fencing, a central requirement, needs to be immaculate and obvious within the exhibit …. it can be plain or ornamental.’
