NEW MEMBERS WELCOME
We welcome visitors and new members from the Porirua region and beyond.
We have a competition at every meeting (except December).
We encourage everyone to take part. You can enter one item per category.
The categories for the meeting competition are:
Bloom - a cut flower
Shrub – flowering or not
Container of growing flowers
Container of growing foliage
Collection of herbs
Novice – for people entering for the first time. It can be anything from the garden
The doors open at 7pm so that there is plenty of time to get your competition entries set up.
Put your entry in (or beside) one of the numbered green containers. Record on the clipboard your name, number and name of item. That helps Margaret, who runs the competition, identify who wins what.
Voting starts at 7.20pm.
Vote for your one choice in each category. There are little slips of paper provided in each section of entries.
At the end of the year the winner is awarded the ‘plate’ and a prize.
