Garden competition

Garden competition

Our annual garden competition recognises local gardeners who use environmentally-friendly garden practices, with a total prize pool valued at $2,000.

Entries are now open for the 2019 City of Whittlesea Garden Competition. More than $2000 worth of prizes are up for grabs for the 'best front garden' and 'best edible garden'. 


Best front garden

Gardens will be judged on innovative colour schemes using both annual and perennially flowering plants or the use of interesting foliage combinations, such as topiary garden.

The novel use of plants and environmentally-friendly gardening practices, such as native plants or recycled materials, will be viewed favourably.

Best edible garden

Gardens will be judged on the amount and quality of the fruit/vegetables and the type produced. Special recognition will be given to uncommon and self-cultivated varieties.

The use of environmentally-friendly garden practices such as the use of grey water or rain water tanks will be viewed favourably.
