Horticulturists have flocked to North Shields to admire the brobdingnagian plants and vegetables on display at the Horticulture and Health Show.
The eighth annual show was held at The Parks Sports Centre, in Howdon Road, North Shields.
Enormous leeks, carrots and onions drew in the crowds.
The winner of the heaviest onion competition, Tony Cuthbert said: “I have won it once before so it is nice to win it again.
“There is no secret to getting them so big, it’s just down to the seed."
North Tyneside Council Allotment Officer, Mike Brannigan said: “These growers start in November, for shows which are on nearly a year later.
“It is a real labour of love and is quite a commitment on their part.
“The exhibitors really support our show and it is that which makes it worth it for me, and for North Tyneside.”
