Don your gloves and head for the garden because the much anticipated and eagerly contested Tablelands Garden Competition is back for 2020.
‘The competition is open to all gardens in the Tablelands Regional Council area,’ said Deputy Mayor and member of the judging panel Kevin Cardew.
‘We have categories for home gardens, new home gardens, rural gardens, edible gardens, community gardens, commercial gardens and for young gardeners.
‘Eligibility details and criteria are available on our website and several of the categories are also eligible for the garden of the year award.
‘You can nominate online or pop in to one of our customer service centres for a form, and they need to be submitted by 4.30pm on Friday 11 September to be eligible.
‘We’ll judge the gardens between Thursday 17 and Tuesday 22 September, and hold the presentations on Thursday 25 September.
‘There are prizes for first and second place in each category,’ said Deputy Mayor Cardew.
