What are we look­ing for?

Gardening Australia - - GARDENER OF THE YEAR -

Re­gard­less of the size or lo­ca­tion of your gar­den, if you are a pas­sion­ate gardener, we want to hear from you! We’re look­ing for some­one who demon­strates cre­ativ­ity and in­ven­tive­ness, and who is com­mit­ted to mak­ing a gor­geous gar­den for them­selves or the use of oth­ers.

The judges will con­sider the fol­low­ing:

DESIGN EL­E­MENTS This in­cludes the look and func­tion­al­ity of the gar­den, how the lay­out re­lates to the needs of those us­ing it, and how well the gar­den sits within its broader set­ting.

PLANT CHOICES The judges will as­sess how well you have se­lected your plants for your lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment, how they work to­gether and how suc­cess­fully they are grow­ing in your gar­den.

SUS­TAIN­ABLE FEA­TURES Tell us how you man­age your re­sources. Do you col­lect rain­wa­ter, make com­post or re­cy­cle or up­cy­cle ma­te­ri­als?

MAIN­TE­NANCE & PROB­LEM SOLV­ING How in­volved are you in the day-to-day care of your gar­den? What chal­lenges have you over­come and how?
