At Home and Garden with Moreton Show

Morton Show

The Home and Garden area is the centre of Moreton Show.

Farming, food and family fun are on the agenda for Moreton Show 2022, with the Home & Garden Marquee in the heart of the showground. This hidden gem embraces the very idea of the Show - where there really is something for everyone.

The vegetables classes are always outstanding and always a great battle to find out who has the best blanched leeks and which beetroot is the most perfectly rounded. Although the growing conditions may have been a little tricky this year, there is no doubt that the green fingered competitors will ‘pull it out the patch’ once again.

And it’s not just vegetables! There are flower arranging competitions, including roses, dahlias, chrysanthemums and many other blooms. They are all an absolute delight to see, plus they make to Home & Garden Marquee smell divine.

Bakers, wine makers, beekeepers and brewers all have competitions to enter. The ‘Fruit Cake’ and the ‘Victoria Jam Sandwich’ competitions are always popular, and the honey classes are a fantastic way to support British beekeepers, as the classes are strictly open to English bees only.

The Handicrafts and Art section encompasses everything from ‘A walking stick in any medium’ to ‘A photo of anything purple’. There are also some great classes to keep the children entertained over the summer holidays too. The running theme for the children’s classes is farming, encouraging the younger generation to join in, and a great way to teach children about the farming industry - whilst having a lot of fun!

Moreton Show Secretary, Esther Watts says: “This is my first year in the role and Home & Garden is one of my favourite parts of the job! I can’t think of another job where you’d talk about baking, types of potato and photography all in one meeting. Everyone needs to pop into the Home & Garden Marquee on Show Day, it is an absolute spectacle!”

So, make a beeline for the Home & Garden Marquee on Show Day and prepare to be amazed, you may even be tempted to enter next year.
