Manapouri gardening hobbyist Neal Duncan preparing his daffodils for the 42nd Te Anau Spring Flower Show which runs on Friday from 2pm until 7pm and Saturday from 9am until 4pm at the Te Anau events centre.

You'd be blooming mad to miss the Te Anau Spring Flower Show.

Spokesperson for the Te Anau Spring Flower Show committee Judy Matthews said the flower show this year was shaping up to be spectacular.

"You have to see it to believe it. The entries are absolutely amazing."

Last year they had about 2400 entries into the show and this year they would have more than 2500 blooms on show , she said.

"We might have to start judging at 7.30am."

This season there was a late spring which had affected the Winton Spring Flower show, but by now daffodils across Southland had bloomed, she said.

"The Winton girls have brought more up than I took down."

They had entries from as far north as Christchurch in the competition, she said.

This year the committee had created a medal in honour of Betty Dodds who started the show 42 years ago, Matthews said.

The medal would be awarded to a class within the open section, she said.
