Green-fingered Graham Talbot was the big winner at Ellesborough and Kimble’s Summer Show on Sunday.
He walked away with the President’s Cup for gaining most points in the show and also secured firsts in eight other categories.
Elsewhere Charlotte Hawes and Lucy Dover impressed in the junior competitions.
A beautiful sight and exquisite fragrances of roses and sweet peas greeted all those who attended the show at Kimble’s Stewart Hall.
Show secretary Brian Butler said: “The show was a success with a few less entries than last year, due to the cold spring weather.
“In the afternoon there were many visitors to the show who not only enjoyed viewing the exhibitors work but a chat over homemade cream teas.”
