Want to impress the judges with your produce at the local village fete? In the book the RHS Great British Village Show by queen of preserves Thane Prince and gardening expert Matthew Biggs you’ll find out what it takes to be a prize winner. Here’s an extract to whet your appetite

Growing for the Show

At any village show you’ll see super-keen gardeners with entries in every category alongside first-timers tentatively offering up one or two exhibits. All are welcome, whatever their experience.

Plan early to boost your chance of winning. Do think carefully about the classes you want to enter and work out how much time you can realistically spend on nurturing your crop – beware of being overambitious. Unless you have your own favourites already, it’s generally a good idea to grow cultivars that are proven show-winners
