HOME grown shallots, cauliflowers, carnations, cactuses, fuchsias, and roses were just a few of the items on show at Greenhead Park in Huddersfield this weekend.
It was time for the 67th annual Flower, Vegetable and Handicraft Show, and garden lovers from all over the region flocked to the park for the two-day event.
Luckily the rain held off as hundreds packed out the marquee to see the array of unusual plants, vegetables, and crafts on display to be judged by a panel of experts.
About 140 hopeful competitors from around the region entered their beloved creations.
The Mayor of Kirklees, Clr Karam Hussain, opened the exhibition on Saturday afternoon, before prize giving for the best exhibits got under way.
Nigel Hancock, organiser of the event, said: “It has been a fantastic turnout. The interest in this show just gets better and better each year.
“This weekend we have had a record number of exhibitors, and the number of people visiting the show simply just to appreciate these amazing creations is just phenomenal.”
Along with the traditional flowers, vegetables and crafts, other categories to be judged included floral art, allotments, and domestic gardens.
Dozens of children got involved in the Crafty Kids’ category. As part of this section, youngsters aged between seven and 13 were able to show off their creativity, whether it be a display of fresh flowers, baking rainbow coloured buns, painting, photography, or even creating a miniature garden.
Nigel said: “We wanted to get more children involved in green issues.”
