Green Fingers Vegetable Growing Competition

During the Heligan Seed Swap this Sunday, we will be launching our Green Fingers Vegetable Growing Competition.

On Saturday 10th October, we will be holding the Vegetable Growing Competition as part of this year’s Heligan Harvest celebration.

We invite all of our green fingered visitors to get growing and bring along the fruits of their labour to enter one of our fun competition classes on the day.

This Sunday we will have giant pumpkin seeds available to take away for a small donation of £1. This provides automatic entry into the ‘Giant Veg Class’ at the competition. We can’t wait to see who can grow the biggest!

Even if you’ve never grown a vegetable before, this is the moment to take on a new challenge, learn a new skill and have some fun! Our team will be on hand on Sunday with advice on how to grow your seeds and they look forward to encouraging our community to get growing!

Competition classes will include Giant Veg, Children’s Growing, Best Fruit, Best Cucurbit, Best Root, Best Brassica, Best Allium, Best in Show, People’s Choice and finally, the coveted Comedy Veg category!

More information about the Vegetable Growing Competition coming soon…
