EXMOUTH in Bloom is introducing a new competition for 2010, highlighting the skills of vegetable growers.

The competition for the best allotment or best vegetable plot in the town was launched at the recent Exmouth Garden Club Flower Show.

The organisers said the announcement proved a popular move.

An In-Bloom spokeswoman thanked the Exmouth Garden Club and the Exmouth and District Allotment Association for their support with the new competition.

She said: "Vegetable growing is becoming increasing popular and many allotments now have long waiting lists.

"We thought this would be a good idea to encourage adults and children alike to grow their own and enjoy the benefits of fresh produce, fresh air and healthy exercise."
