You can only win in this competition. Gardening is lots of pleasure but it is also hard work. Enjoying your garden space is part of the reward, but we would like to reward you too. There are fantastic prizes to be won including garden equipment, garden supplies, nursery discounts, dinners out and holidays away. All the prizes have been generously donated.

We are looking for both landscaped and non- landscaped gardens of every style and size.

We can reward you and your entry fee will all go towards Gillitts Lions charity work to help our communities.

Only 4 people will visit your garden to judge it, and if it is a finalist garden, then one photographer.  So your garden will not be open to the public.

Judging is the early June 2017
