Garden Competition is on again

Central Coast Gardens are full of life

Central Coast Council has once again allocated funding for the 2018 Wyong District Garden Competition.

“This will be the committee’s 45th Garden Competition in what was the old Wyong Shire,” said Committee President, Mr Errol Grace.

“Schedules for the Garden Competition and the associated Horticultural Competition will soon be available at all local libraries and various nurseries throughout the area.” Entries are open to all gardeners who reside in the old Shire boundaries. Entries for the Garden Competition will close on Wednesday, September 12, with preliminary and final judging the following week. The competition will culminate with a presentation afternoon at the old Wyong Council Chambers, on Wednesday, October 3, with winning gardens opening to the public on Sunday, October 7.

In conjunction with the presentation afternoon, a horticultural competition will be held for keen gardeners to present their best vegetables, pot plants and flowers for judging. There will also be an organised bus trip on the open garden day for those that do not wish to drive themselves. The garden competition will include whole or part gardens, courtyards, vegetable gardens, school gardens, retirement complexes, native gardens, community gardens and commercial premises. The committee is urging keen gardeners to get their gardens ready for judging, submit an entry and be part of this longterm community event. “The committee would like to express their thanks to Council and the numerous local nurseries who have supported us over the years,” said Committee President, Mr Errol Grace.
