Visitors doubled to 1,500 on last year for the weekend’s 106th daffodil and spring flower show at Springfields Events Centre.
Lincolnshire Daffodil Society moved its competition to Spalding three years ago and it’s now run in association with the charity, Springfields Horticultural Society.
Charity chief executive David Norton was delighted to see so many visitors as well as a boost in the numbers of entrants and exhibitors.
He said: “This shows the event is now capturing the interest of more people.”
President of Lincolnshire’s daffodil society Lady Sally Bruce-Gardyne has been awarded the charity’s 2015 Carlo Naef Trophy as a supporter of the county’s daffodil growers and amateur competition enthusiasts.
Among highlights were displays of 60 or so specialist varieties of daffodils as well as a garden display serving as a shop window for the bulb industry. Among contributors was multiple Chelsea gold medallist Johnny Walkers.
