COVID lockdown has given gardeners in the greater Coffs Harbour Council Area the freedom to spend more time in their gardens. With this in mind, the Garden Club Executive thought it a heaven-sent opportunity to still conduct the Spring Garden Competition.
See some posts about preparing for competition under the Hints and Tips tab above under the dropdown ‘Spring Garden Competition’.
There may be changes to the prize pool as you can fully understand. Our local businesses have been hit hard and it would not be reasonable to expect the same level of support from the business community. It is however, a ‘not to be missed’ opportunity to showcase our Coffs Coast gardens.
The 2020 Spring Garden Competition will be launched the last Saturday in July (25th), this is when entries will be accepted. Coffs Harbour Garden Club have organised an out of area Residential/Industrial/Commercial judge who is really looking forward to seeing what the Coffs Coast has to offer in good gardening principles.
Entries will close the FIRST Friday in September (4th) with judging 13-15 September 2020 throughout the whole greater Coffs Harbour Council Area.
There will NOT be a Schools competition this year as their year has been so disruptive.
Entry forms will become available 25th July 2020 from the Coffs Harbour Council website to download, paper entry forms can be picked up from local sponsor businesses including local nurseries and the Botanic Garden.
