This year’s competition will focus on beautiful blooms: there will be one class only! Bring your beautiful camellia flower heads (one to three per person), to wow the ICS judges!

Winners will be announced at 11am on Saturday 26 February in the Conservatory. There will be first, second, third and fourth place prizes.
