  2. Any size plate of mixed soft fruit
  3. A display of three different types of vegetables, any number of each
  4. Five tomatoes of any one variety
  5. Longest and shortest runner bean – photograph your entry with a ruler/tape measure alongside
  6. Potato in a Bucket – photograph your potatoes together with an A4 sheet displaying the weight in kg/g, and ideally include yourself in the photo

How to enter

Photograph your entry in landscape (‘horizontal’) format.

Email it to tricia@thegardenersblacksmith.co.uk together with your name, a note of which class you are entering and, if you wish, a title for your entry. (You can also post your entries on Facebook or Twitter but please tag the ULRHS so we can see them – @UpLRHS and @ULRHS respectively.)

Submissions should be made between Monday 6 July and Wednesday 8 July.

The galleries will be live on the Society website at 1pm on Saturday 11 July – when we’d normally open the gates to the real show!
