Dollar Horticultural Society
Dollar Horticultural Society as it was once known is now over 125 years old and still attracting around 150 entries to the Annual Flower Show.
In the early years at Dollar there was a dairy section which attracted a lot of interest from the surrounding farms and estates with classes for cheese, butter and eggs. The prizes were also prestigious as can be seen from the medal* for the most points in the show which the prize winner kept for life.
The present committee have tried to keep up to date with trends and have introduced a very popular photography class that replaced the wine class which in turn had replaced the honey class.
The past few years have seen entries in the vegetable section increase as the interest in producing your own vegetables for the home has grown in popularity.
If you have a suggestion for a class that you think would be popular please speak to any committee member. We are keen to see the club continue in Dollar and need your support on the day of the show and throughout the year.
