Everything from tulips to tomatoes will go on display when a group of passionate growers hold their latest gardening show.

King’s Lynn Horticultural Society, which has been helping people “grow their own” since 1826, is due to put on its annual open show on Saturday, August 13, at South Wootton Village Hall.

There will be all the usual classes, for flowers and vegetables, arts and crafts and cookery.

And this year there is a new trophy, which has been donated by Lynn-based Amberley Hall Care Home, awaiting the baker of the tastiest plateful of Shrewsbury biscuits.

Younger entrants – up to 16- years-old – again have a range of classes to choose from.

These include a mini garden in a seed tray, an animal made from fruit and vegetables, four jam tarts or a display of three different vegetables grown in their own garden.

In all there are a total of 29 trophies to be competed for in 117 different classes.

Staging of the exhibits will take place between 8 and 10am with judging following until midday.

Entries for the show will be accepted up untilnext Friday at 6pm.

Entry, which is free for the general public, will be between 12.30 and 5pm with the presentations taking place from 4.30pm.

Refreshments will be available.

The society hope as many people as possible will support them, by either entering an exhibit or attending what is usually an extremely colourful event.

Entries this year should be submitted to the chairman Eddie Barber at: 8 Grimston Road, South Wootton, King’s Lynn, PE30 3HU or by calling 01553 671505.
