The North of England Horticultural Society (NEHS) will present its 2011 Harrogate Autumn Flower Show to mark its 100th anniversary and to feature super-sized vegetables. The event will take place on the 16-18th September.
NEHS is the leading gardening charity in the North England, which arranges first class flower shows and exhibits suitable for the northern areas of the country. This year’s event will feature giant vegetables cultivated and harvested by master gardeners. Peter Glazebrook, an all-time champion at the flower show and member of the European Giant Vegetable Growers’ Association, welcomed the new classes for giant varieties.
In an interview, he said that these super-sized vegetables have a reputation for being a closely guarded secret of the gardening world. On the other hand, more and more people nowadays are becoming more interested in sharing their experience for cultivating these oversized plants. Glazebrook is now urging everyone to come and see the upcoming event to meet the growers and to find out more about the new technologies in gardening.
In this year’s show, you can expect to see the grandest exhibit of flowers, plants and vegetables harvested from all over the United Kingdom. They will also feature seminars on growing standard-sized fruit and vegetables from the kitchen garden live team, as well as cooking demonstrations in the theatre.
Martin Fish, show director of NEHS, said that this year they will be showcasing a broader range of plants rather than specializing in just a few to inspire the people of new ways to promote horticulture. So if you are interested to come and see the show, then get your reservation now. The closing date for entries into the fruit and vegetable classes at the show is on September 10, 2011.
