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 entry will receive a small prize (here's a hint: what do flowers grow from?). 

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.
