Harrogate Flower Show 2006

There we were looking at exotic flowers, water features, garden furniture and everything imaginable for the keen gardener.

A visit to the produce hall to see the competition marrows, leeks and the like was quietly interesting but imagine my surprise to see that famous horticulturalist from Methley, Frederick Worth, Esq. walking in through the entrance. Fred had just come into the hall to see how his shallot entries had fared. It was no surprise really to me when we walked to the shallot entries to learn that he had won both first and third prize in class 107 – large shallots.
Congratulations Fred.

Mind, I shouldn’t wonder if he hasn’t won more times since then (2017).
