The Sussex Chrysanthemum and Dahlia Society stage a regional show in Hassocks on Wednesday, September 11.

Dozens of best blooms from Sussex and beyond will be gathered at South Downs Nurseries.

Scores of exhibits are expected with judging during the morning before the show is opened to the public from around 1pm onwards until prize-giving at 3pm when awards are presented. These consist of silver and bronze plaques, cups and certificates.

The society has been running since 1966 and they stage two prestigious shows a year: the early show which is held at South Sowns Nurseries yearly at the beginning of September and a late Show held at the end of October for later-flowering blooms.
