Our annual garden competition recognises local gardeners who use environmentally-friendly garden practices, with a total prize pool valued at $2,000.
The winners have been announced for the 2019 City of Whittlesea Garden Competition.
Vicki Servinis of Thomastown was the winner of the best front garden for her cottage style garden which boasts a sea of colour with a variety of roses, canas, bulbs, daisies, geraniums and elephant ears.
Vicki's garden features a range of foliage, layers and textures and when viewed from the street creates a warm and friendly environment and a talking point among passers-by.
Maria Mercuri won best edible garden for her Thomastown garden which is full of eggplant, chillies, cherries, apples, persimmon, peas, apricots, tomatoes, grapes and more. Her extensive range of fruit trees and vegetables are a visual feast. Her grafted tree provides four different citrus types.
