Convener Daphne Batt said it had been four decades since the Winton Garden Club Spring Flower Show began and it was only getting better.
Daffodils were the main feature for the show because people had been growing them very professionally, she said.
"They’re very fussy and when they pick their flowers and display them, they really titivate them a lot.
"They sit there and look at them from all angles and make sure the petals are all in the right place."
Mrs Batt said last year’s show had about 1100 entries for flowers and she was expecting just as many this year.
She said although there were a lot of entries from professional growers, there were plenty of entries from novice growers who wished to display pickings from their gardens as well.
There would also be contributions from kindergarten pupils in the area.
"The preschoolers really get behind us and the kids will come along and bring the things they make in their group projects."
Besides daffodils, everything from other garden flowers, trees, shrubs, magnolias and even little alpine plants were welcome at the show, Mrs Batt said.
There would be trophies and prizes handed out at the show including a special surprise to celebrate its 40th anniversary.
Milburn daffodil grower Alan Brown would return to judge the daffodils this year, she said.
