Event. The Circular Head Garden Club is abuzz with Garden Spectacular preparation as the showcase returns to Stanley next month.

Held at Highfield Historic Site, the spectacle will feature an array of floral exhibitions, installations and demonstrations, keynote speakers, food and wine tastings, cooking demonstrations, stall holders, live entertainment and much more.

A family day out, competitions will be open for the novice to the experienced gardener and children can delight in dress up or exhibition competitions.

Following the theme, What’s the buzz about the bees?, children are encouraged to create a fairy garden or spooky creature from fruit and vegetables to enter into one of three age groups: under seven, under 10, and under 16.

Children will also have the chance to enter a fancy dress competition dressed to the theme Bees and Butterflies with cash prizes available in the two categories: under four, and 10 years and under.

The enthusiastic gardener can enter into close to 60 categories as well as one of three floral arrangement sections.

The novice section will see entries such as a floral spectacular, an arrangement in a container from yesteryear or foliage in the limelight. The open section will feature a floral table arrangement including fruit or vegetables, a garden in a container or a design which features weathered wood.

Floral art competitions will also be open to qualified and apprentice florists and Tasmanian clubs can take part in the Battle of the Garden Clubs.

All competition entries must be received between 4 and 8pm on Friday October 20 or Saturday October 21 between 7 and 8am. For more ‘Like’ the Circular Head Garden Club Inc Facebook page or email chgcspectacular@outlook.com.
