                   NOTES FOR EXHIBITORS
Please read the schedule carefully: your exhibit must comply with it. Is it in
the correct class? If the class states six beans, five or seven will not do.

Check that pots are clean and the correct size (pot size is measured as
internal top diameter). Use standard round types and avoid commercial,
fancy or outer pots.

Pick your best blooms. They should be free from leaf and petal damage.
Carefully remove any damaged leaves. Make sure your exhibits are pest and
disease free.
Caterpillars don’t win points.

Wash and gently dry vegetables. Where more than one vegetable is shown
aim for even sizes, (e.g. Class 58 Five Potatoes).

In the Heaviest Onion Class trim roots to heel plate and cut the top to a
measure (the tube from a loo roll).
Onions exhibited in other classes should be dressed i.e. stem trimmed and
bound with raffia or pale wool.

In the Domestic Section do not use jars or tops with commercial names or
logos on them. Label jars with contents and date.

Please note there are trophies for the best Novice. This year we have
relaxed the rules on the definition of a Novice, see rule 16 and the special
Novice Section (classes 83 – 90). Come along and have a go.

If you have any doubts please ask.
