What defines 'exhibition' growing? How does it differ from regular growing?

Growing for a Horticultural Show/Exhibition speaks for itself IMO

This does not include a small local or allotment show.

can you add my name too please - I have never grown a pumpkin before and have just got to make sure the chickens don't get their beaks on them  :)
Staffies are softer than you think.

They need to be able to sprawl a long way - I grow squashes round the edge of other beds.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

I wasn't going to grow any big ones this year, but count me in!
Do you get just the one entry or can you have one for the biggest, and one for the best looking?

Just the one entry, the 'prettiest pumpkin' poll is something of a consolation prize for the people who can't manage to grow a big'un  ::)

So nothing for those who have small ugly pumpies then?  :lol:
