Each Type of vegetable will be judged out of a total of 20 points. This is split into three sections as follows :

All vegetables to be displayed for effect. The vegetables must be displayed within an area measuring 18in x 24in (45cm x 60cm), without bending any part of them. No part of any exhibit may exceed the size of the tray. A tray or board measuring 18in x 24in (45cm x 60cm) can be used to display the vegetables, or the area can simply be marked on the staging. Where a tray has a lip or edge, it is the internal measurements that must not exceed 18in x 24in (45cm x 60cm).

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.
