Thetford Garden and Allotment Club took part in the Edwardian Fete at the Kings House Gardens in the town.
The sun shone on the annual show on Saturday, which saw produce displayed in a traditional marquee and flowers and craft sections set in the conservatory.
Organisers said it was their biggest show by far, with more than 400 entries in 100 classes, which ranged from children’s vegetable monsters to the serious business of Victoria sponges and cakes made with courgettes, to the freshest raspberries and apples, as well as the heaviest pumpkin.
There was also a competition for growing the most King Edward potatoes in one pot, which was won by Chris Upstone, with Ethan and Poppy Lister beating all the other adult competition. Poppy was also praised for her wonderful Edwardian costume.
Many of the committee had dressed appropriately for the Edwardian era and Keith Goldsmith won the best dressed gardener’s prize, as well as the trophy for the best collection of fruit.
