Potato in a bucket

Each year, the Froggatt Show has a class for growing the most amount of potatoes in a bucket. On show day, each of the buckets submitted is weighed. The prize goes to the grower who has produced the most potatoes by weight. Seed potatoes will be available at the Easter seed swap (see below) for anyone who wants to have a go!

Easter Seed Swap 2024

Saturday 30th March 2024 at Froggatt Chapel, Moorlands Lane, Froggatt. It’s Free!

Every grower has extra seeds that might never get used. Bring them along to the Froggatt & District show, annual seed share and swap. If you are a budding beginner or don’t have any seeds to share, you are invited too.

Many thanks to Chatsworth Garden Centre for sponsoring this seed swap.

This is a great opportunity to pick up seeds you need to get started and put in an entry in to Froggatt 78th show on the 24th August 2024, to show off your green fingers.

How it Works

Entrance is free.

Seeds can be in packets or self grown: Marked up in envelopes or bags stating what they are. Put your seeds into the named containers: Flowers: root veg; Brassicas, herbs; random. Browse the containers and take what you need. If you don’t bring seeds to share there is a donation box.

The event is hosted by Froggatt & District Horticultural show to encourage entries into the show and provide services to growers and hobby gardeners. Everyone is welcome!

Show Date 2024

Froggatt Show will take place on Saturday 24th August 2024. See the links below for more information about the show.

Volunteers welcome

As always we are looking for volunteers to help in the week leading up to the show and on the day. Volunteers make the show possible and without them, this traditional village show cannot happen.

If you would like to offer your help please use the contact form or attend the annual open meeting which is normally held early August, before the show (TBC). It’s held at Froggatt Chapel, Hollowgate, Froggatt – click this link for a map.
