The New Forest Show 2012
Join us as we take a look at some of the highlights of the New Forest & Hampshire County Show 2012.
These Agapanthus and Gladioli won a large gold for Jaques Amand from Stanmore in Middlesex.
Out came the sun and in came the crowds to the show ground set within the beautiful New Forest.
Visitors were not disappointed by the huge variety of entertainment and attractions available at this years show. The ringside and arena events were well attended throughout the day with visitors taking advantage of the glorious weather. 
The flower show and marquee, under the watchful eye of chairman John Penny certainly put on a full display of ornamental and edible crops of all shapes and sizes plus many trade stands and display gardens. 
The show president this year is Alan Titchmarsh who spent considerable time in the Flower Show commenting favourably to exhibitors about their displays and speaking to the many admiring visitors who were surprised to bump into him as he walked around the show.
The following photographs show a flavour of the Flower Show.
