Growing for Showing 

The new year 2019 is with us , so this year why not show off our plots, flowers fruit and vegetables.The BDAC will hold talks on showing off your plot and putting flowers fruit and vegetables on the show bench. 

You can pick which way you want to go. If you want the best plot you need a plan and working hard so its at its best when the judging happens.If the show bench is more your thing you will need the best seed catalogues. You will only get the best flowers fruit and vegetables if you start with the right seeds and plants. This will mean you have good quality plants of a uniform nature and get the good results.
