The Balmoral Show ‘Fill Your Boots’ competition, sponsored by Hillmount Garden Centre and 3T Power, showcased “Boots fit for a Queen” in recognition of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The Royal Ulster Agricultural Society (RUAS) President Christine Adams had the difficult task of judging the competition.
Rivalry was fierce as green-fingered enthusiasts battled it out to be crowned king or queen within the Healthy Horticulture section of the show.
