Groves Nurseries are holding a Giant Pumpkin Contest.

The pumpkin variety known as the 'Wallace Whopper' was grown by local gardener Nigel Wheeler in his allotment in Burton Bradstock.

Nigel's loaned it to Groves for the competition.

He said he was surprised himself at how big the pumpkin grew:

"It seemed like every day I went back it was a little bigger! I didn't do anything special. I really just planted the seed and watched it grow. 

"It was sitting next to a huge pile of manure so that may have helped?"

The correct guesses will win a Groves Garden Hamper and the 50p entry fee will go to the Weldmar Hospicecare Trust.

And Groves are also holding a showcase of creatively carved pumpkins this week until this Sunday 3 November.
