Kyabram Garden Club holds pumpkin day

July 2, 2014 3:45am

The crowd listened intently to presentations on the many uses of the pumpkin.


Kyabram Garden Club members gathered for a day of pumpkins at the Parkland Golf Club last week.

More than 50 members attended to hear special guest speakers Jay and Sharon from the Australian Pumpkin Seed Company and Larry Smith from Riverside Gardens talk about the little known benefits of pumpkins, winter gardening techniques and equipment maintenance.

Those in attendance were also treated to a lunch of pumpkin soup, scones and jams and submitted their entries in the various pumpkin competitions.

Pat Wakefield won best floral arrangement and best pumpkin went to Sandra Graham’s butternut pumpkin.

Rhonda and Doug Cox took home the award for best dressed pumpkin with their inventive scorpion designed piece.

Kyabram Garden Club president Steve Graham said he was happy with the turnout and the guest speakers.

‘‘The guest speakers were great and the pumpkin competition attracted a lot of attention,’’ he said.
