Spring into the garden competition

Malcolm Stewart might rely on his wife, Ann, to do the garden designing but this 83-year-old is no stranger to a garden spade and is busy preparing their garden for judging in the spring competition.

IF YOU want judges to praise your petunias or applaud your azaleas you’ll need to be quick as there are only two days left to enter your garden in the 2011 Spring Garden Competition.

Hosted by the Coffs Harbour Garden Club, the spring garden competition has a variety of sections designed to accommodate all sorts of gardeners and the gardens they tend.

Native gardens, balcony and terrace gardens, school and commercial gardens, flowering beds and vege patches, pool surrounds and caravan gardens as well as small and large gardens and those tended by tenants, mature aged or disabled gardeners, are just a sample of the gardens welcome for entry in this year’s competition.

For a full list of sections, conditions and prizes drop in to your local nursery/garden centre or the Advocate office at 53 Moonee St, Coffs Harbour, to collect an entry form.

But be quick because if you want to show off your blooms the deadline is noon Friday to have your entry form completed and returned.

For more information contact Pat Roser on 6690 2511.
