In the Horticulture Marquee there will be over 80 competition classes for Flowers, Pot Plants, Vegetables, Fruit, Home Baking, Handcrafts, Flower Arranging and special Children's Classes under 9yrs and under 15yrs. We also have 6 qualifier competitions for All-Ireland Championships in Vegetables & Home Baking to be held later at shows in Tullamore, Virginia, Castleblayney & Tydavnet.

There will also be a wide selection of Flower & Gardening Demonstrations, Seed Sowing, Herb Growing, Hanging Basket & Container Gardening, Plant Propagation, Gardening Marquee Treasure Hunt, and all-day Gardening Advice.

So, if you think that you can grow the Best Vegetables & Flowers in Fingal or if you would like to be the Best Baker in Fingal come along and join us at Flavours…entry to all competitions is FREE.

Flavours of Fingal Gardening & Horticultural Show is organised by Fingal Horticultural Society (Swords), Naul & Balbriggan Gardening Clubs.

The Competition Classes are open to everyone, and we especially encourage first time exhibitors who will be assisted with their entries by members of the Fingal gardening clubs. A Perpetual Silver Salver plus a cash prize of €???, sponsored by Fingal Council will be awarded to the Best Exhibit in Sweet Pea, Cut Flowers & Pot Plants, Vegetables & Fruit, and Home Baking.
