The annual event has 12 categories for gardening enthusiasts to choose from including town garden, school garden, commercial garden and Facebook people’s choice.

First place winner for each category is $100, second place is $75 and third is $50 plus a sash for each winner.

The Champion Garden will also receive garden vouchers and goods valued at over $1000 and a trophy.

The judges are looking for a “pleasing first impression” with little weeds and diseases, composting, paving, garden structures, good planning and design and overall tidiness.
