2016 Autumn show winners

This year saw more than 280 exhibits in 38 categories, with a range of ages taking part.

Judges found it hard to pick the winners, as the standard of homegrown fruit, vegetables, herbs, homemade jams and chutneys and vegetable art was extremely high. 

All of the winners were presented with a multi-coloured rosette and garden centre vouchers to continue with their horticultural efforts by the Deputy Mayor of Hillingdon, Cllr Carol Melvin.
