Where a tray has a lip or edge, it is the internal measurements that must not exceed 18in x 24in (45cm x 60cm).

2 – A black cloth is permitted, and the tray may be painted. Parsley is allowed for garnishing, but no other foliage or accessories, such as plates, sand, rings and so on, will be allowed. Onion tops may be tied or whipped using raffia or string.

3 – Notes for exhibitors and judges

  • Carrots and Parsnips must have foliage trimmed back to 3in(7.5cm)
  • Peas and beans must be shown with some stalk attached.
  • The tray, board or staging must not be cut or mutilated in any way at all -such as cutting holes to stand onions in.
