Ferndown & District Horticultural Association Summer Show

Stewarts are sponsoring the new Children’s Classes at Ferndown & District Horticultural Association’s shows. The Spring Show was in April and there were some fantastic entries, both in the children’s classes and in the adults’. If you’ve never been to a Horticultural Show before, we suggest you pop along to the Summer Show, as there truly are some marvellous specimens on show!
