An early call for all the aspiring and dedicated gardeners in our City (along with those who just enjoy being in the garden) that our annual Garden Competition is about to get underway. Entry forms will be letterboxed in the near future – so don’t confuse it with any election material. Our judges are scheduled to get their task underway towards the end of September so everyone should plan to have their gardens looking the best around mid September.
We’ve got nine categories in this year’s competition – front domestic, rear domestic, planted nature strip, annual display, native garden, edible/sustainable garden, school or community garden, gardens in industrial or commercial properties and gardens in residential complex maintained by a professional gardener. There’s something for everyone and I know we have a lot of regular entrants (including my favourite young gardeners HaHa and Logan). I’d like to see entries from as many of our local gardeners as possible so that we give the judges a big challenge. I’ll let everyone know when the entry forms are being circulated.
