Gardening Competition

Each year we hold our Annual Seaton Valley Gardening Competition. The competition is a way for residents to share their gardens with the community.


Seaton Valley Gardening Competition 2020

This year there was a reduction in the categories due to the restrictions and all entries had to be seen from the kerbside.

Once again the judges had a difficult job grading the awards, as many of the applicants had managed to cover every inch of space in vibrant planting. One judge said ‘I love the welcoming atmosphere surrounded by colourful flowers, and how creating a vibrant container garden can benefit both the owner of the garden and the wildlife alike’.

The 3 category winners each receive a voucher prize donated by Lakes and Dale.

The winning gardens for 2020 are:

  • Best Front Garden – Malcolm Collins – Gold
  • Best Hanging Basket – Hartley Court – Gold
  • Best use of recycled Materials – Jen Watts – Gold

In addition the New Hartley Memorial Garden received a Gold award and the group was awarded a Special Achievement Award for their dedication in tending this garden and making it the beautiful tranquil place that it is.

We would like to thank everyone who entered the competition as we have really enjoyed visiting your gardens, and hope that next year we can offer more categories in the 2021 competition.
