Flowers for one and all

Holding a photo of Allan Adamson's dahlia cultivar, Granddad's Ebony, at the North Otago Horticultural Society's 150th spring show on Sunday are Mr Adamson and his granddaughter Ebony Heta (13), of Oamaru.

Mr Adamson, a 30-year veteran of the society, submitted 54 entries to this year's spring show at the Scottish Hall in Tyne St.

The show was first held in 1868 with gardeners from large estates and enthusiastic amateurs.


This year it had more than 400 entries. Mr Adamson says the committee invites any gardener to enter.
