Gardening Competition

Gardening Competition 2022


Do you have a garden that you are really proud of?

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

Whether your garden in a tiny courtyard or on rolling acres, we would love to see it as we welcome entries from gardens of all shapes and sizes.

The competition is free to enter and is open to all Seaton Valley residents.  You can enter yourself or even nominate a neighbour’s garden, a business or a local community project.

There are lots of categories to enter into.  The categories are:



  • Best Garden
  • Best Single Container/Hanging Basket
  • Best Business Display
  • Best Community Garden/Space
  • Best Allotment Plot
  • Best School Display

The closing date for applications is Friday 15 July with judging due to take place from the 25 July.  Prizes will be awarded to the winner in each category.

Application forms are available below and from the council offices in Seaton Delaval.
