9:58am Thursday 29th August 2013 in News
GIANT pumpkins, potatoes and onions are all expected to fare extremely well in the 59th annual show of the Poppleton Road Allotments Association.
Between 400 and 500 entrants are expected across the vegetable, flower, handicraft and cookery sections at Saturday’s show at Holy Redeemer Church Hall, Boroughbridge Road, York.
Show manager Peter Byrne said: “There is an extremely giant pumpkin in one of the allotments and I know it has been an exceptionally good year for potatoes and onions.
“It is a really good day out for everyone to get together and share their views on this year’s produce.”
Prizes include gift vouchers from Kings Seeds as well as money and the category cup for each section.
The show will open at 2pm when produce from the 125 allotments will go on show. There is also a raffle and the opportunity to buy some of the exhibits on display.
