Wakefield and North of England Tulip Society's annual show: See the stunning petal patterns and unique displays captured in these 14 pictures

Brown beer bottles and stunning feather petal patterns are just some of the things that make the Wakefield and North of England Tulip Society’s annual show unique – take a look at our 14 pictures which captured the day.

The society’s annual show took place on Saturday, May 11 at the Ossett War Memorial Community Centre and saw tulip growers enter their decorative plants to be scrutinised by the judges and compete to win trophies.

The society is one of the last remaining in the country solely dedicated to growing and exhibiting tulips in a competitive setting, with the English Florist’s Tulips – identifiable by their striking petal patterns – and brown beer bottles used to display them particularly unique to it.
