Undoubtedly The Horticultural Show Handbook published by the Royal Horticultural Society is the bible for every vegetable judge and no judge, however good he may think he is, should attend a judging appointment without one. It is also in my opinion a must for every exhibitor because within it's [...] pages are suggestions to exhibitors regarding how every vegetable should be selected as well as how they should be prepared properly for showing. This way, if both exhibitor and judge learn the same rules and guidelines, any up and coming young novice should be able to place an exhibit on the table that will be within the parameters that the judge should be looking for. --MedwynsOfAnglesey.co.uk

The guide will not only help show competitors, but is the bible for any gardening committee wanting to run a show well, or for anyone who is asked to judge.
Sadly my copy arrived too late to help me for this year's show (my first), so my raspberries got the dreaded 'Not According to Schedule' notice on the display table. However, armed with this book next year, I will be able to show my raspberries with pride and hopefully they will get the award they deserve.
Not ideal, some pictures of how to lay out your good would be better, but a comprehensive guide for grading and scoring your produce, nonetheless.
Has a handy ruler inside the back cover to check your courgettes aren't over 150mm long too...
