Gardening & Horticultural

In the Horticulture marquee there will be competition classes for flowers, pot plants, vegetables, fruit, home baking, handcrafts, flower arranging and special Children's classes under 9yrs and under 15yrs.  

Flavours of Fingal Gardening & Horticultural Show Competitions is managed by the wonderful Fingal Horticultural Society

If you wish to take part, you MUST let us know by (Date TBA), so we will know how much space to allocate to each class.

A new addition this year is that the Irish Shows Association has agreed to allow us to be a qualifier show for 4 All-Ireland Finals! So if you think you can grow the best vegetables or be Ireland’s best baker, you can qualify to enter the finals later in the summer, by entering an outstanding exhibit at the Flavours of Fingal Show.

The four Irish Shows Association All-Ireland qualifiers are (TBC): 

(1) Odlums Home Baking Championship 
(2) Bord Bia 7 A-Day Best in Season Kitchen Garden
(3) Bord Bia Quality Potato Championship 
(4) Lidl Quality Onion Championship.



  • Flower Arranging demonstrations by Christoper White from Three Gates Nursery Naul, multiple medal winner at Chelsea and Bloom

We also will have:

  • demonstrations on planting seeds
