    16) Best imaginative/useful garden/allotment structure
    17) Any other item

    And, a special category for this year...

    Best in Show!
    To be judged by Admin.




    ***This is just for fun, presentation is informal as this is not a serious competition.***



    NB "All entries must have been grown by the entrant for at least two-thirds of the life of the plant
    and should have been cropped during the 2015/2016 season

    Classes will open soon - date to be arranged.

    Closing date will be the end of September, midnight on the 30th.

    Voting will take place over a period in October, dates to be agreed.

    As with last year's competition, points will be awarded to 1st/2nd/3rd places and the final totals will be presented at the end of the competition.


    The GYO magazine will be featuring this competition in the magazine over a series of months so your entries may actually end up in print!!

    As previously, they have kindly offered to provide small prizes to the top 3 winners on 'cumulative points'
    And an extra prize for Best in Show!

    ..so get in loads of piccies peeps! ( the higher quality the better- but that isn't essential)


    Good luck - and enjoy!!
