Cow created with flowers impresses guests at Alresford Agricultural Show

A cow created entirely with flowers by floristry students took pride of place at a recent agricultural festival.

The students, from Farnborough College of Technology in Hampshire, were commissioned to create the cow for the Alresford Agricultural Show by a local accountancy firm.

It took a team of students from the level two and three floristry courses a total of two days to complete the cow, nicknamed Daisy.

“This was a fantastic opportunity for our students. They worked well within a team to make their design a reality, and we are all proud of their incredible achievement,” said floristry lecturer Vicky Hutton.

“We’ve received a thank-you email from the event organisers, and are delighted that they enjoyed the design as much as we did.”

The show took place on September 2, and has been running for over 100 years. It hosts activities ranging from animal petting to ferret and pig racing.

“It’s brilliant that our floristry students are able to create floral designs for clients. We look forward to working with the Alresford Agricultural Show in the future,” added programme manager Gwen Grace.
