Southport Flower Show 2005

UNLIKE past years the weather at the Southport Flower Show was bright and sunny, and not a drop of rain in sight. As always it was a huge success, not only for the locals but also the tourist and vendors alike, there was also a lot of TV coverage, the biggest ever to be present at the yearly event. Last year the show was reorganised for 2005, into what is believed to be the best show yet. This is the second consecutive 4 day show with Sunday proving to be a very popular addition to the 75th show. Families visiting this year benefited from the new children’s area with a variety of activities to keep them occupied while Mum and Dad wondered around at their leisure.

With the most popular displays being the school and student garden design competitions, these being the most innovative features at the showground with Roddy Llewellyn being patron. No matter which way your head turns you will be hit with a vision of beauty, or a gasp of surprise. From demonstrations of master craftsmen, thatching a roof with skill and ease. To showing of their skills at using old traditional methods to make everything from, cane seats, baskets and pottery. To the Sculptured area with sculptures of strange and wonderful things to traditional products, which are handcrafted and are imported from South Africa and Zimbabwe. These exhibits showcased a variety of talents from street artists to some top gallery exhibits. The best way of describing the show is to show you, so we have got lots of pictures on here. We will also have some video footage on Liverpool Reporter very soon and we will be adding more pictures soon.

All in all this years flower show was an event not to be missed or forgotten, but to remember. This event was so great that it would make anyone think, roll on next year. The Southport Flower Show is a world of inspiration to any garden. Below are the winners to the wide variety of competitions.
