One of the main missions of The Southampton Garden Club is to share the knowledge and love of gardening through the hosting and staging of public flower shows.
The club is fortunate to have a number of special trophies gifted by past members, their families and friends.
These trophies were given in memory of specific members and are awarded, if merited, by GCA judges at SGC flower shows.
While only SGC members are eligible to receive these awards, not all trophies are awarded at every show.
