Late entries to horticultural section accepted

MORE than 150 exhibits are expected to permeate the horticultural pavilion at the Fraser Coast Show this year.

Maryborough Horticultural Society president Joy Duke said the society was the major sponsor for the Fraser Coast Show's horticultural section.

"We have five expert judges coming for the section's competition," she said.

"There will be such a great variety of plants in all the sections, including bonsai, cut flowers, floral art and pot plants.

"We have 26 exhibits in our floral art category which I am really excited about.

"This is the largest amount of entries in many, many years - there's a lot of interest there, which is very exciting."

Ms Duke said they were still taking entries.

"Late entries are very welcome on the Wednesday, May 23, between 2-6pm," she said.
