Plot Competition – Entries Wanted

Entries are now being accepted for Barnet Allotment Federation’s annual competition to find the best allotment plot in the area.

Please don’t be put off! Pointalls plot-holders have won this competition in the past. We have not entered for a few years but now with many new plot-holders the time is right to open up the opportunity again to everyone.

Judges are not looking for a show garden. This is not the Chelsea Flower Show. This competition is simply about good allotment gardening. It is a friendly competition with cash prizes, trophies and a social evening for the winners.

Let us know that you are interested in having your plot considered for entry in the competition. You can do this by sending an email as soon as possible to sitemanager@pointalls.org to say you are interested. We will follow this up with you, offer guidance and discuss what needs to be done.

Plot entries have to be registered with the Federation by 29th June. The next important date is 14th July when chosen plots will be visited by Federation judges who then draw up shortlist. The final decision is that of an independent judge who will visit the shortlisted plots on 21st July.

If you think that your plot demonstrates what allotment gardening is about please take up the challenge and email sitemanager@pointalls.org.
