How you decided to germinate, grow and feed your vegetables is up to you!
We have decided on a selection of five different vegetables that may be grown and one flower, but ONLY your best nominated three will count towards the competition results.
You must nominate your three chosen classes BEFORE 28th August 2019 and we must be notified of your chosen classes via email. All seed will be from the same batch numbers so everyone has the same seed and exactly the same chance as anyone else.
You have five options to choose from, choose your best three (3) categories to enter and count towards the overall points. You don’t need to grow and submit all five before choosing three - BUT you will need a minimum of three entries i.e Globo, Enorma and Long Green Bush. Submitting 3 Marrows will result in 1 entry.
The veg options are:
Heaviest Onion - Globo - 100 seeds
Heaviest Tomato - Secret Beefstake variety - 10 seeds
Longest runner bean - Enorma - 20 seeds
Heaviest Marrow - Marrow Long Green Bush - 5 seeds
Longest Leek - Giant Winter - 100 seeds
Tallest Sunflower - Giant Single - 10 seeds
Points will be awarded in each class as follows:
3 points for 1st place
2 points for 2nd place
1 point for 3rd place
Based on total points of your chosen three classes there will be an overall winner, then 2nd and 3rd place with a seed prize for each..
Photos (where possible) are to be shared on social media or emailed every 2 months in first week of the months.... April, (if sown), June, August and finally in Sept at the close of the competition.
Only one entry in each category per person.

In case of a tie in the final points tally, we will count back to the person with the most firsts in the three classes, then seconds, then thirds if required. If there is still a tie then names will be drawn at random from a hat.
We have designed this to be a bit of FUN and to be enjoyed by all. But it is a competition so it may take a bit of extra work to make the winning difference...
Good luck to everyone
