Horticulture at Wensleydale Show Online

These classes are usually supported by mainly local horticulturalists with strong classes in Dahlias, Chrysanthemums , houseplants and a wide variety of vegetables and fruit.

CHAMPION OF SECTION is awarded to H1-4 – Three matching carrots

Congratulations to John Dale

“Altogether I was impressed with the quality and number of exhibits through all the classes in this section. I was very pleased to see that people have got behind this wonderful idea of an online show and with a true British ‘stiff upper lip’ attitude of finding a way around the issue of not being able to hold the live show as usual, so well done to all participants and organisers.

I award the ‘Champion of Section’ award for the Horticultural classes to H1-4, for the wonderful presentation of some superb carrots, the quality of which I was even envious of! These sported not a single mark or blemish visible, were all so wonderfully equal in size and were very well displayed. Well done!” (Judge Aaron Hickman)

Vase of any garden flowers


Here we are looking for blooms to be picked at their optimum time and showing perfect examples of their type. Other factors will be colour, lack of blemish or disease. We are expecting some very good exhibits this year as the weather we have experienced this summer has encouraged flowers to bloom.
