Ellerslie Awards 2012

The Awards for the best displays at this year’s Ellerslie Flower Show were announced yesterday evening. Find out who won.

I was manning the Kiwicare stand at CR1 and answering garden and pest control questions from the hundreds VIP guests invited to the award ceremony. The evening was hot and sunny and this suited the finely dressed ladies and gentlemen. Ladies in their summer frocks and gentlemen in their rolled up sleeves and sunnies wandered the Show with glasses of wine in hand.

Kiwicare Silver Award Display at Ellerslie 2012
The Kiwicare stand won a Silver Award, so well done to the team that put it together. At the stand is a demonstration of the Kiwicare Organic weedkiller where you can spray some weeds, take a walk around the show and then return to see how the weeds have fallen over on the way to death. There is also a live link to the Kiwicare garden website problem solver. You can surf and see if your garden problems are listed on the site and find the solutions. You can also enter a draw to win $500 worth of garden products…….it could be well worth a visit.

I will be there today (Wednesday 7th March) and again on Sunday (11th) to continue answering your questions. Ben Adams will be there with his gardening knowledge on the intervening days.

A qualified student from the School of Floristry is designing and ‘constructing’ a display to be added to the Kiwicare stand so come along and see it.

At a marriage guidance session the instructor asks the husbands to name their wives favourite flower.
A husband leans over to his wife and whispers “It’s self raising, isn’t it?”
