Haworth flower show’s popularity continues to grow
Despite it being late September, visitors to Haworth yesterday would have mistaken it for the height of summer thanks to a horticultural show.
The Worth Valley Horticultural Society held its flower and vegetable show in the town’s community centre, and there were more than 200 exhibits on display, bathing Haworth in beautiful colours and smells.
It was the second year of the competition, and organisers say it seems to be gaining popularity as more people hear about it. The show was introduced to create a way for growers to exhibit the flowers and veg that don’t bloom until after the usual summer show season, such as chrysanthemums and dahlias.
There were 24 exhibitors at yesterday’s show, displaying about 200 exhibits.
Mike Cunningham said: “The standard of the entries was A1, all the judges commented on the high standard.”
He estimates that at least 250 people visited the show during the day.
