    Prize Money
    We have simplified our approach to prize money. In adult classes we no longer offer prize money unless specified in the schedule. Instead each adult cup or trophy will be awarded a prize of £5.00. In children’s classes we continue to award prizes in each class, £1 for 1st, 50p. for 2nd and 30p. for 3rd. There will be a prize of £2 for each child’s cup. While these changes retain the traditional competitive aspects of the show, our aim is to encourage exhibits from all types of garden and gardeners with a view to informing, entertaining and stimulating those who come to the show. No garden is too small – no interest is too way-out to participate.
