Vegetable Crushers

Film synopsis

Vegetable Crushers tells the story of an escalating dispute between two gardeners, Ely and Nick, over the use of their jointly-owned allotment in suburban London. What begins as a minor difference over a bucket of compost, degenerates into a full-blown battle over seeds, fertiliser, and, ultimately, boundaries and territorial sovereignty. Their differences become irreparable and hostilities intensify as each destroys the others’ lovingly-nurtured cabbages, leeks and turnips. To avoid bloodshed, local councillor Sam is called in to mediate and broker a peace agreement. But Sam has a different agenda in mind. Instead of resolving the crisis, he opts to play Ely and Nick against each other, siding with Ely one day and Nick the next. Behind the scenes, however, and unbeknownst to the two gardeners, Sam is making a tidy profit by taking a cut from the endless sales of new seedlings being sold to the warring parties by Raymond, the owner of the nearby gardening supplies store. Rather than seeking peace, Sam’s objective is to see the allotment war continue for eternity
