New Forest Show - First Prize

The New Forest and Hampshire Country Show is an annual agricultural show held for three days at the end of July. With large amounts of individuals, groups, organisations, and businesses present at the show, there is a large variety of stands large and small which are all in some way related to the local area or conserving the environment.

Stewarts Garden Center from Wimborne and Christchurch, have  created a flower meadow at the show for the last 5 years. The site is prepared early in the year and the seed is sown directly to the garden in April and the area is worked on and protected until the show at the end of July. We at Stewarts are extremely pleased to have won First in the 'Trade Stand' section.
Below are a few of my images from the show. I am hoping to get a macro lens in time for the show next year as the garden attracts large amounts of wildlife.
