A tour de force of mammoth marrows, tremendous tomatoes, colossal cabbages, awesome onions and many more vegetables of all forms, size, weight, colour and texture are promised in September when Rhondda Heritage Park hosts a Giant Veg Show.
The free entry, two day show opens on Saturday 7th September and continues throughout the weekend.
Visitors can also enjoy fresh produce from food producers, advice provided by gardening clubs, wildlife stands and cookery demonstrations .
The original Giant Veg Show took place in Llanharry and was organised for 25years by Philip Vowles - the show moved to Rhondda Heritage Park last year. Philip is himself a Guinness World Record holder for giant vegetable growing and is hoping to recreate the success of the Llanharry Show at Rhondda Heritage Park.
Nicola Newhams of Rhondda Heritage Park said, ‘ we have been very lucky to have such a gardening champion in Philip helping us organise our very first giant veg show last year and we are hoping that this years show will be even bigger!’
