Tideswell Open Show is on 1st September this year,which is an invitation to all you budding gardeners to put on your gardening gloves and get sowing. It’s lots of fun, very friendly and you don’t need an allotment to enter, bring something from your own garden or kitchen window sill.
It’s not just about vegetables either, there are classes for flowers from specimen blooms to pretty posies, classes for eggs, and plenty of prizes for Children such as ‘Animal magic’, an animal made from vegetables or fruit, or a plate of multi-coloured vegetables. For those of you who prefer flour to soil, there will be trophies for baking and home-made jam. This year there is a special photography competition “Poppies in a Field” to celebrate the 100th Armistice year. So no excuse, spring is in the air and it’s the perfect time to “Grow for the Show”.
