Gardening Competition 2018

Our annual gardening competition is a great way to showcase your gardening talents, as well as meeting like-minded & green fingered people.


We have been running the annual gardening competition since 1981 and have continuously had a great reception with it.

There are many different categories to enter:

  • Best kept garden overall
  • Best kept small garden
  • Best kept large garden
  • Best kept vegetable garden
  • Best new tenant's garden (April 2017 - April 2018)
  • Best sheltered housing scheme communal gardens
  • Best family garden
  • Best community garden
  • Best window box or container garden
  • Best greenhouse (vegetables)
  • Best greenhouse (flowers)
  • Carol Johnson best wildflower garden award
  • Best wildlife garden

The information and categories are published in the Spring/Summer edition of the T&L news, as well as on our website. 

Judging will take place during the summer - 9-11 July.

The awards ceremony will be held on the 14 September at Scotsdales Garden Centre, Great Shelford.

Winners will receive a trophy and certificate.

If you are proud of your garden, and would like to showcase it, then you should enter!

NB: You must be a South Cambridgeshire District Council tenant or leaseholder to enter. You will need to spend around an hour showing our judges around your garden, and the award ceremony is around 2/3 hours long.
