Horticultural Section

Show what you grow!

Since the inception of the Somerford Show, the exhibition tent has been a key attraction of show day.

Each year there are hundreds of locally grown entries across a wide variety of classes, including: Fruit, Vegetables, Floral and Agricultural. The Horticultural Section has two Divisions, one for local villagers and one for the wider community.

The classes are always keenly contested with huge pride at stake, even the ‘Weirdest Looking Fruit or Vegetable’!
