We know how hard our customers work in their gardens and allotments and have seen some of the stunning results so it's time to share your horticultural achievements with others and maybe win a cup for your hard efforts and some Groves vouchers. You have until June 14th to enter your garden or allotment in this year's Melplash Agricultural Society’s (https://www.melplashshow.co.uk/2017-garden-competition-results/) garden competition.  The Society’s annual garden and allotment competition is the most prestigious amateur garden competition in the area.  It is a unique opportunity for local residents to be rewarded for their creative skills and passion for gardening.   The competition is open to everyone who lives within a 12-mile radius of Melplash Village Church.
