Visitors enjoyed plenty of stalls, prizes and sun at the 58th annual Kidderminster Horticultural Society show.
The event took place over two days in the grounds of the Mercure Kidderminster Hotel, Habberley Road, Bewdley, earlier this month.
Organisers said there were 642 entries in the show and visitors enjoyed a country fair as well as vintage cars, motor bikes, old agricultural tool displays, workshops and a show from Elements dance school.
Society member Louise Aston, who won the prize for container-grown plant, said: “The show went very well and we were really pleased with a very good turn out from local people and people coming from long distances.
“Entries were a good standard considering the summer we have had but the numbers were down a little in some classes.
“The Elements dance show was very entertaining and professional and enjoyed by a lot of people.”
Winners including Greatfield Road allotment who won the allotment prize, Stan Greenaway won best exhibit at the show and Tom Weaver won best chrysanthemums.
Other prizes went to Ray Green for his white wine, Vic Morris for pot leeks and the winning dahlias were grown by John Robinson.
