Garden Competition, May 2018

The Dorset Wildife Trust says:

Currently our 2018 WILDLIFE FRIENDLY GARDEN COMPETITION is open for entries until the END OF MAY 2018 and I wondered if members would like to enter?

The competition is FREE to enter and  the application form can be found online here:

All you have to do is tell us about your garden or community space and if you can, send us some pictures too!

There are several categories available to enter: Large, Medium, Small, Rented or Community. We are also looking out for new, innovative ways to do things in the garden!

Once you enter we will get in touch  to give you a date when our judges will visit you to score your garden. We give feedback to all gardens once the competition is finished.

The competition is sponsored by the GARDENS GROUP and will culminate in an AWARDS EVENING AT CASTLE GARDENS, SHERBORNE IN JULY which every competition applicant is invited to. Winners of each category will receive a wooden winner’s plaque and a bag of goodies from the Gardens Group.

This year our speaker at the awards evening is  NEIL LUCAS from KNOLL GARDENS talking about his experience of wildlife friendly or ‘naturalistic’ gardening at Knoll Gardens. Neil is the leading expert in grasses in the UK and has been on the committee for the RHS for a number of years and is sure to give an entertaining talk!
