Forfar Horticultural Society began its 118th annual flower show and exhibition in the town’s Reid Hall on Friday.
Trophies will be presented on Saturday at 4pm and the hall is open to the public from 10am to 5pm.
Society chairman Les Craib said it has presented awards every year outside of both world wars, and was established in 1892.
This is his last year as chairman, having headed up the committee since 1981.
“The standard of competition has been high and pot plants and vegetables have been outstanding this year,” he said.
“There aren’t many chrysanthemum growers now in the area and there were not many roses because of the weather, but they will bounce back next year.”
