Takes a lot of time and dedication to grow Show and Giant vegetables. They may not be very pretty to look at; but it takes a lot of time and skill to grow them. Some of the vegetables can be eaten but not until they have cleaned up all of the prize money!
If you fancy trying your hand at growing a few of these beauties contact the Giant Veg or the National Vegetable Society websites. You can buy seeds, compost and books that will turn you into prizewinning grower. There are Regional and National Show where you have the chance to meet up with other growers. It is a chance to pick up a few hints and tips that will help you produce prizewinning veggies.
Just remember to say "Goodbye" to summer holidays relaxing on a beach.
