Front Garden Competition 2024

Here is a little more information about each of the classes for the competition

PRIVATE PREMISES

A  BEST HANGING BASKET
If there is more than one basket on the premises, please tie a ribbon or something similar to indicate clearly which basket is to be judged.

B  BEST DISPLAY
Have fun with this one! It could be a planted feature (a wheelbarrow or a bicycle, for example) or a combination of planted containers all grouped together. Perfect for a courtyard garden, the judges will be looking for an exciting, colourful floral display not planted in the ground.

C  BEST FRONT GARDEN
This class may include a combination of flowers, shrubs, even trees. The garden can be hidden from the road but must be accessible on the day of judging.

D*  MOST FLORALLY ATTRACTIVE STREET

E*  MOST FLORALLY ATTRACTIVE PART STREET (MIN. 3 PROPERTIES)
Properties need to be adjacent to each other, forming a group, so please name the properties to be judged.

* IF THERE ARE INSUFFICIENT ENTRIES FOR CLASSES D AND E, THEY WILL BE COMBINED

COMMERCIAL PREMISES

F  BEST HANGING BASKET
These will be judged as a whole, whether there is one basket or many

G  BEST DISPLAY
As with Class B, this is a floral display not planted in the ground.

WHAT THE JUDGES ARE LOOKING FOR:
Healthy well-cared for plants; a basket should have a balanced shape and real floral impact; a display should be well balanced and fit together nicely as a whole with a lovely combination of colours. If the front garden has a lawn, it should be mown and have neat edging (unless it is part of a wild garden).
