New This Year
Unlike all other classes the new Scarecrow class is open to groups as well as individuals so that families, friends and work teams can join in. The full size scarecrow exhibits will be outside and promise to be a fun feature of this year´s event. As always, all are welcome to enter.
Also this year is a new miniature tomato class which reflects the increasing popularity of small tomatoes. Miniature are defined as 20mm or less, while cherry are 35mm or less.
A YouTube video class hopes to attract many entries with the theme of “Perspectives of Hurst”. Video entries will be showing during the show and available on the website afterwards. Detailed instructions for all and guidance to encourage the inexperienced will be available under the “Instructions” button above by the end of March.
