Gardening competition 2024

Time to show off your best shrubs, tubs and bulbs! We've seen your gardens flourishing - why not enter them into this competition for the chance to win a grand prize?

This year, we've changed up the categories to our competition. You can submit your green space into as many categories as you like - as long as it's relevant. Here's what we're looking for:

  • Best Garden (front or back)
  • Communal/Community Garden
  • Wildlife Garden
  • My Family's Garden
  • My brilliant balcony/window sill
  • Best hanging basket/tub

How to enter:

Fill in the form at the bottom of this page about your garden, your neighbour's garden (if you're nominating another Trust tenant) or if you're a community group.

You can also email us pictures to or post them to Peaks & Plains Housing Trust, Ropewalks, Newton Street, Macclesfield, SK11 6QJ

Our deadline is August 15th 2024.


Our judges will look at your garden's visual impact, originality, your time and effort, and the consideration that you've given to both the wildlife and surrounding environment. 


We know how much commitment gardening takes, so every category has a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prize. We also have a Grand Prize for our favourite green space out of all the categories. 


Here are a few of our entries from previous years if you're wondering what we might be looking for.


You need to live in one of our homes to enter - unless you're a community garden. Then you just need to be on our patch! (That just means near our homes - Cheshire East or High Peak)

Enter your Garden into our 2024 competition!
