Visitors to the 172nd Polmont Horticultural Society Flower Show were in for a great time last weekend.

The event, which was once again held in Polmont Sports Centre, was awash with colour, aromatic scents and some remarkably large vegetables.

Proud participants were delighted to show their flowers and produce to the gathered crowd of visitors and to the judging panel.

Of course, prizes were given out on the day, but the main focus of the annual event was the celebration of hard work and dedication that is put in by all involved.

It’s safe to say that once again the show was a resounding success.

In a post on its Facebook page Polmont Horticultural Society said: “What a fantastic day! There were lots of super entries and a great turn out.

“A huge thank you to our commitee, judges, scouts, helpers and visitors.

“We could not have done it without you.”
