Hundreds turned out for a popular spring flower show which displayed a record number of entries on Saturday.

Epsom Garden Society held its eye-catching annual show at St Martin's Junior School in Ashley Road, Epsom.

Jill Farnham, show secretary, said: "The very mild winter and early spring resulted in a record number of exhibits with almost 300 entries from over 30 exhibitors.

This Is Local London:

"In particularly the daffodil classes were very crowded with over 70 exhibits, which the flower judge commented to be of 'a high standard'.

"The society’s president really demonstrated his excellence in these classes taking first place in 14 of the 15 daffodil classes and subsequently winning the Helen Reed Cup for Daffs with ease.

"He also won the Len Humpreys Spring Trophy for gaining the highest number of points in the show.

This Is Local London:

"However, the winner of the best bulb/flower exhibit in the show went to Bernard Vyvyan for his beautiful Fritillaria which the judge commented were 'of RHS standard'."

Mr Vyvyan is vice-president of the society and Alan Moody is its president.
