South Newington Flower and Produce Show – Sunflower & Potato

Sun flower seeds

Collect your seed from the mouse resistant plastic pot in the church porch. Plant it, nurture it, feed and water it!

Come to entry evening on Thursday 10th August 2017 so that arrangements can be made to measure your sunflower in your garden. The judges will measure on the morning of the show…..leave them a step ladder if required!

Happy sunflower growing!



 Potato Plants

Collect your chitted potato from the church porch. The potatoes will be there for the next fortnight.   Plant the potato in a 30 cms diameter pot, full of soil.  Neglect it and you lessen your chances of winning! Water it, feed it, let it bask in the sun, top up the soil and you could be a winner!

Enter on entries evening at the village hall – Thursday 10th August 2017. Then bring along your pot to the exhibition tent on the morning of the show – Saturday 12th August 2017 where the potato contents of the pot will be weighed!
