Fruit, veg and flowers at Comrie Horticultural Show
Vegetables were the stars of the Comrie and District Horticultural Show on Saturday.
Green- fingered gardener Alan McGregor’s labours in his allotment paid off to bag him the bulk of the prizes at the traditional village event.
And newcomer to the show Brian Perks was delighted to take the prize for most points in fruit and veg for someone who has not won a cup before.
Visitors enjoyed perusing the tables of produce as well as floral displays, home baking and crafts in the White Church.
Comrie and District Horticultural Society chairperson Helen Stewart thanked everyone who took part and
all those who had helped to prepare the show. She said: “Considering the summer we have had we did have a good display of vegetables and flowers. We also had good entries in the baking.
“The children that entered in their various categories did very well but we would love to see more youngsters entering next year. There are lots of prizes to be won. We also need more entries in floral art and photography.
“Thank you to everyone who helps keep the tradition going in the village. We are very grateful for all the support whether that be at the street market, leading up to the show, the show itself or the clean up.”
