Hook Flower & Produce Show

The Hook Flower & Produce Show will take place on Sunday 8th September (from 2pm to 5pm) in Hook Community Centre.

NEW FOR 2019 – the Hortus Loci Plant Centre Best In Show Trophy.

It will build on previous Flower and Produce Shows first held by Hook Allotments Association in 2014. 2019’s event will consist of the Flower and Produce Show in the main hall of Hook Community Centre, supported by a traditional tea room (sponsored by Tesco) and fundraising in support of Hook In Bloom. Hook In Bloom, Hook Allotments Association and Hook Village Halls are working together to stage the show. The eagerly awaited results of the Hook In Bloom competition will also be announced with District Councillor Jonathan Glen presenting the prizes. It is thanks to our sponsors and village fundraising that we can continue to hold the show.

Sunday 8 September 2019

We are currently putting the final touches to the planning behind this year’s Show. As before, you may want some forewarning of some categories so that you can start practicing. Most of the vegetable, flower and produce categories are fairly standard and we hope that everyone will enjoy growing and making their best entries.  A full list will be soon be available on the HAA and In Bloom websites and it is planned to deliver a list and entry form to every house later in the year.

Some of the others:


We are keeping the Celebration cake or gateau but introducing this year’s challenge of a “roulade”.


Historical Hampshire (new); Flowers and/or fungi; People (single or group); Wildlife; and

Ecclesiastical building or part thereof. (New)

Pre-School – (Group or individual)

We are seeking a Collage entry from as many individual children as possible but also ask that each of the pre-school groups exhibit a group entry.

Under 15 years

Vegemal ;  Papercraft (e.g. origami, quilling. etc);  Family picnic (one portion) (new); Cupcakes;   and this year’s challenge – Chocolate eclairs x 3 (new)
