The recent cold weather hit the region hard, and affected the gardening community, too.
Burnham-on-Sea’s Horticultural Society hosted its spring show on Saturday, despite recent conditions having an impact on the entries.
However, show secretary, David Bryant, still hailed the event a ‘success’.
He said: “We had more than 150 entries, which is remarkable when you consider how bad the weather has been.
“This is testament to the growers, as only those who are committed managed to get their displays ready in time.
“Overall, it has been a success and there were some beautiful floral and domestic entries on display.”
Top prize went to Paul Ware, whose blooms were named best entry, he also won the most points in photography classes.
James Newman took home two prizes, for his children’s and junior growing achievements.
