What is a "Root Vegetable"?

A number of our members  have raised the question if a Garlic bulb is a root Vegetable of not? As it is often confusing in which class it can be entered. This year we had it shown both as a root and non root vegetable.

As no-one appeared to know the answer we decided to ask "The National Vegetable Society" to clarify it for us. Attached is a summary of what the exhibitors and Judges bible define as root Vega. So there is is Garlic is NOT a root vegetable.

GRAND FLOWER & VEGETABLE SHOW
SATURDAY 8TH SEPTEMBER 2018
<Click Here for more photographs>
Considering the awful (for growing things in the ground) bitterly cold spring and then the exceedingly hot and dry summer, the display of fruit, vegetables and flowers in the show held at Penkford School was superb. Among other features, a "Guess the weight" of the pumpkin and "Guess the height" of a sunflower raised a nice sum for the MS Society charity ; the 137Ibs pumpkin was given to Kenyon Hall aftyer the show where it will raise money for other charities during the pumpkin Festival. Prizes were presented by Phil Round of the Rotary Club the shows main sponsor and by Julie Johnson, Head of  the school.
