Garden Competition 2020

A free to enter competition for all gardeners of the Kirkoswald parish area. 


In these difficult times, we would like to celebrate how lovely all of our gardens are looking this year. After discussion with Kirkoswald Environmental Group (KEG) and members of the parish council, we have devised a free to enter competition. 


All you have to do is submit three photos of your garden or allotment, taken this year. These will then be judged by an independent and expert panel and the best will be displayed digitally.


The judges' main criteria will be; ‘Would I like to spend time in this garden?


There will be certificates awarded for:

1.    Large and lovely: for larger gardens

2.    Abundant and productive: for allotments

3.    Petite and pretty: for patios, yards and window boxes

4.    Wonderful for wildlife: planting and homes for pollinators, wildlife and more 

and (with big drumroll) the Best Garden Overall


Please send your three photos (garden only, no people please)

to with your name and the address of the garden or allotment by 15 July 2020.

Nick and Ruth Anderson
