Whilst we can always do with more entries, we did very well and ended up with a colorful show. Just look at the photos, that give a hint of what could be seen.
The vegetables looked ready to ready to eat without further preparation. How do the growers do it? The same goes for the fruit classes as well.
As always, the energy of our Chairman Rick, gets us all motivated, and we are grateful to him for all his efforts. It proved very worth while.
RHS judge Geoff Peach made his decisions and commented that, generally, it was encouraging to see such a good number and standard of entries.
Congratulations to all those who came first in a particular class, and to the prize winners, who can be seen below.
