Home-grown fruit, flowers and vegetables are the stars of a special show on Tyneside on Sunday.
The fifth Newcastle Allotment and Garden Show is taking place at the civic centre and is expected to attract up to 1,000 visitors.
Competition categories range from prize leeks to the best-dressed scarecrow, and council gardeners will be on hand to pass on their expertise.
The event is open to all gardeners and allotment-holders in the city.
All produce will be sold off at the end of the day, with proceeds going to the Lord Mayor's charity.
Cllr Wendy Taylor, executive member for environment and sustainability, said: "Over the last five years, the show has established its place in the city's calendar as a fantastic celebration of gardening in Newcastle.
"Visitors to previous shows have been impressed by the standard of produce on display and I am sure that this year's event will not only be bigger but also better than ever."
