Send us photos of your gardens in full bloom, and our judges will take a look at your displays. The overall winner stands to win £250, and individual category winners can take home £75 each! We want to see gardens that make the best use of space and extra points will be awarded for environmental awareness features, such as composters, water butts, wormeries and use of peat-free products.
For this year's competition we have added some different categories. These now include 'Most Wildlife-Friendly' and 'From Grot to Plot', which should show an area of land which has been transformed from a waste space to an area for growing, sharing and admiring.
Do you keep on top of the weeding and clearing and take pride in your garden?
This can be anything which benefits the community, is wild or unusual and is self-sustaining.
For groups who work to grow produce, use creativity in their green space and promote sustainability.
An area of land which has been transformed from a waste space to an area for growing, sharing and admiring.
Showcasing your most wildlife-friendly garden or plot. Show us how you care for wildlife and the environment such as using water butts, wormeries, bug houses, plant species, bird-friendly ideas or recycled materials.
Each category has a winning prize of £75 and the overall winner will receive an additional £250.
