Garden comp entries are open now
ABC Television’s Gardening Australia host, Costa Georgiadis, will be visiting the shire to judge the inaugural “Let It Grow” Douglas Garden Awards.
Green thumbs will have a chance to show off their work in the competition from now until August 25 with judging to take place on the September 14 and 15.
Douglas Shire Mayor Julia Leu said she was pleased locals had this opportunity.
“We have so many fantastic gardens in Douglas, so I’m delighted local gardeners will be able to enter the inaugural awards,” she said.
“For me the awards are about showcasing our creative green thumbs and demonstrating the health and psychological benefits of gardening.
“I’m very excited Costa can make it to the Shire to judge the awards.”
The awards has a category for every type of garden from large landscapes to regular home gardens.
Gardens will be judged on their design and layout, environmental initiatives, use of plants and creativity.
