The hot summer weather has not made gardening easy this year but it did not prevent a great show being put on at the weekend.
Yatton Horticultural Society’s summer show brought a large crowd to the village hall on Saturday as displays were lined up for judging.
As ever, everything from tasty cakes to attractive floral exhibits were on show.
Joan Pittock, the society’s vice-chairman, said the number of entrants was slightly down but exhibit numbers were steady.
She conceded the stunning weather in June and July had made growing a challenge, saying the hot temperatures had made it a ‘very, very tough’ season.
Joan said: “The bakery classes were down because I think too many people felt it was too hot to put the oven on.
“But, strangely, the vegetable classes held up and we had a very good display.”
A number of first-time entrants took part this year and the society was pleased to see people from Congresbury and Nailsea compete too.
