GOING LARGE IN HARROGATE

The Harrogate Autumn Flower Show was held between September 15-17, 2017 and was a great success, with more than 37,000 visitors attending during the course of the three days. As usual the Kitchen Garden editorial team was there to meet readers and to answer gardening questions from the Kitchen Garden Live stage.

Steve Ott and Emma Rawlings gave talks on using herbs, with Emma explaining how to make muscle-relaxing herbal bath salts for use after a hard day’s weeding, while Steve made the audience a cup of tea – lemon balm tea that is!

Once again the giant vegetable competitions pulled in the crowds with a massive 179 entries showcasing everything from giant tomatoes and beetroot to the KG sponsored heaviest onion competition. There were no records for the giant onion growers this year, but the winner was still a whopper at 6.65kg.

This one was grown by our old friend Peter Glazebrook who has held the record on several occasions in past seasons. Peter also won first prize with his heaviest marrow (66.8kg) as well as a number of other prestigious prizes. Last year’s winner Joe Atherton was relegated to third place with his 5.909kg bulb, but took prizes in several other classes including a first for his 16.81kg beetroot!
