Vegetable Championships

Harrogate plays host to the National Onion Championship, the National Vegetable Championships, the North of England Horticultural Society’s fruit and veg show plus the giant vegetable competition.

Here is my pick of the crops, both beauties and beasts. Big thanks to Gary Welford for taking the pictures!

Plant Nursery Pavilion

Here are the displays that caught my eye this time around…

Watch out for Monday’s post when I’ll be looking at the best exhibits in the Floral Pavilion and the Borderline entries.
