GREEN-fingered growers proved they know their onions as they gathered to exhibit their giant vegetables.

Enormous onions, king sized carrots and colossal leeks were some of the produce on display at the annual Strathclyde Leek and Onion Show at Cardwell Garden Centre.

This year the event proved to be more popular than ever with 135 entries across 25 categories.

It was Niall Currie from Rothesay who proved to be the 'king of the crops' after being announced as the show's overall winner.

Visitors to the garden centre marvelled at the displays of enormous vegetables including three-foot high leeks as well as onions, potatoes, cauliflowers and beetroot.

Children also had fun with games like hoopla, hook a duck and feed the clown along with a visit by the Little Critters petting zoo.

Paul Carmichael, Cardwell’s retail general manager, said it was great to see so many mammoth vegetables on display.

He said: “Once again, the green-fingered gardeners did themselves proud.

"We had a fantastic display of giant and perfectly-formed vegetables.

“If our chefs in our Patio Restaurant had got a hold of the veg on display, they could have made the biggest pot of soup you’ve ever seen.”
