Harrogate flower show 9/17
The Harrogate autumn flower show is home to the National Vegetable Championships as well as to specialist competitions (dahlias, bonsai, carnations, honey etc). There aren't many show gardens here, unlike some of the higher-profile shows, but a lot of nurseries have displays and plants for sale. Many of these are specialist growers.
Here are a few photos to give you a feel of this year's offerings. If fruit and veg float your boat, you might like these:
