Gardening enthusiasts and novices were invited to learn about the craft and display their work at the Ramsey Horticultural Society Show.
Everyone in the district was given the opportunity to attend with both old and young entering the competition and classes on Saturday (July 25).
Society chairman and show secretary Ian Gaunt said: “The show was very good; we had more entries this year than we have had before.”
Throughout the day classes were run at the Ramsey Rural Museum on how present floral arrangements, pot plants and hanging baskets, about growing fruit and vegetables, baking cakes, making preserves and photography.
“The works of art then went on display and in the evening some went up for sale in an auction to raise money for the society.”
Prizes were also given out to those that displayed their work and judges felt were the best.
In total the society managed to raise £350 from entries and the auction.
