Experienced gardeners and novices are welcome to enter Wales' only giant vegetable competition, which this year takes place on Sunday 25th October.

Last year's competitors came from near and far to show off vegetables of monster proportions!

Last year, a carrot measuring more than 3 meters and a 72cm runner bean were among just some of the produce on show at Aberglasney.

Amongst the list of categories which include heaviest individual marrow and longest parsnip, there will also be a prize for the ugliest vegetable in the show.
