Blacktown City Council is calling on all green thumbed residents, in the search for the city’s best gardens.

Entries have now opened in the 2020 Blacktown City Garden Competition.

Blacktown City Mayor Tony Bleasdale OAM said, “The annual competition is a showcase of the pride and gardening skills of many of our residents, schools and community groups.

“There is more than $3,000 in prize money as well as garden products, landscaping supplies and movie passes on offer across 14 categories.

“With the competition being one of the best-known gardening contests in western Sydney, many gardeners are already well down the track in having their gardens ready for the judges.”

Keen gardeners have more than a month to bring their gardens into bloom before preliminary judging takes place between 31 August and 11 September.

Entries will be assessed on design, construction, maintenance and sustainability. The final round of judging by industry experts will be conducted in late September.

Categories include best front garden, best back garden, best native garden, overall champion garden and best sustainable garden.

There are also categories for our senior citizens and gardeners with a disability as well as community and commercial gardens, school gardens and edible gardens.

Last year, the Blacktown City Garden Competition attracted a total of 56 entries, with the Doonside home garden of Eddie and Margaretta Rutkowski crowned Champion Garden. (pictured above)
