JUDGING CRITERIA

First Prize £25 and the Furze Trophy, Second £20, Third £15, Best on Site £10, Best Endeavour by a new plot holder £5

Each year the Horticultural Society sponsors a competition to find the best kept plot on the West Bridgford sites. Up to 3 plots are selected from each site which are then judged not only on tidyness but also on range of produce, good technique, composting etc. The full set of criteria can be accessed via the link opposite.

 

Selection for 2018 took place in June. Plot holders selected were then notified so that they could complete final preparations before judging in July. The winner is not eligible to take part in the competition for two years.

 

· First Prize is £25 and the Furze Trophy.

· Second Prize is  £20.

· Third Prize is £15.

· Best on Site wins £10.

· Best Endeavour by a new plot holder wins £5
