Chat to the folk who are already exhibiting - they will be happy to support and encourage you. There are specific strains of veg for exhibition growing.

Look at the pages on Goypeadia - lots of examples of exhibits there. Also go to local shows and see what is exhibited and how and find out what the judges are looking for?. Join a garden/growers club where you can pick up ideas/tips. Grow for exhibition what interests you and also suits your soil/setting. I would suggest that above all you do not put yourself under pressure to compete too soon! Enjoy getting your allotment under way and successful first?
