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.

This years show was  another great success as both exhibitors and visitors were both encouraged to come along for an enjoyable day as the sun shone for us in mid September. A big thank you to all our Penkford School our sponsors and helpers who are such a key part of putting on this local event. The NLWGA association look forward to welcoming you again next year maybe with even better flowers and Vega to put on display, if this is possible?
