Hazelbury Bryan Gardening Club had more than 400 entries at their annual show last weekend with the vegetable section positively exploding with entries giving the judges a very difficult job. The flower section was also full of stunning displays.

A new competition for this year’s show, sponsored by The Gardens Group, was to grow the heaviest crop of potatoes in which 32 members took part, each given a potato, bag and compost.

All looked on anxiously as chairman Matthew Mills and his stewards tipped and weighed the potatoes with the overall winner being Julie Bennett and her bag of 2.680 kilos of potatoes.
