No idea from me, someone will know for sure. Could you contact the organiser to double check.

All I can comment is, that the 35 people up to now that have viewed the thread, cannot answer your question. Nor can I.

Could I remind you please that it is against site policy to "bump" your own posts and I'm sure that when someone who can answer your question comes along, they will do.

This sub-forum is a very small part of the GYO forum, where in the main, its members are mostly interested in growing food for consumption, not for show, so please bear with us.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

RHS Handbook. Glossary page 162

Salading and salad vegetable
A vegetable used in either a raw or cooked state and served in salads as a cold dish. The following examples are kinds that may be used for horticultural-show purposes: beetroot, cabbages ,carrots, celariac, celery, chickory, chives, corn salad or lamb's lettuce, cress, cress (American or land), cucumbers, dandelion (blanched), endive, Florence fennel, kholrabi, lettuces, mustard or rape, onions(green salad), oriental brassicas, potatoes, radishes, sweet peppers, tomatoes, turnips and watercress.

Most shows base their classes on the RHS handbook. I have to say that my local show would look twice if some of the above were entered as part of a "Collection of salad vegetables". As DD says, ask your show secretary. He may not have a clue. The only person who really has the answer is the judge on the day. Judges carry a handbook with them which is referred to for guidance. Going on the above list celery is OK
