Prize Winning Veg for Earley's Employee

The team at Thirsk-based young plant producer Earley Ornamentals congratulated their colleague Cash & Carry Assistant, Adrian Read following his success for the National Vegetable Society at the 2019 Harrogate Spring Flower Show.

Winning a Premier Gold award and Best in Show for displays in the Special Educational or Scientific Interest category, a superb array of vegetables were grown and displayed by Adrian who worked alongside two other NVS members. 

The display featured a variety of vegetable plants in various stages of growth, including tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, and culinary leeks – all of which sold out as soon as they went on sale. The team also won the Best in Societies category.

Adrian, who works in the Cash & Carry department at Earley Ornamentals, is chairman of The North Yorkshire and South Durham District Association (NYASDDA), he is also branch Chairman of the northern branch of the National Vegetable Society. With an impressive track record, the team has clocked up a total of 38 Gold and Premier Awards since Adrian started. In the last 28 shows he’s had a minimum of Gold.

Commenting on the success, Adrian said: “We were delighted with our win at the Harrogate Spring Flower Show as it is always an important event on our show calendar. It’s a great opportunity to encourage the visitors to the show to grow quality vegetables, share with them our top advice for growing perfect produce and inspire new members.  

“As you can see my passion for growing prize-winning vegetables isn’t just a hobby, being able to be around plants here at Earley Ornamentals means I get to share my knowledge daily.”
