It can take many years for a new flower garden to reach full maturity. It is a challenge to evaluate and compare a newly planned flower garden to one that has received attention for several years and has developed into an elaborate floral display. Therefore, we have decided to introduce a Recently Established Flower Garden Competition for those gardens that are just getting started and for gardeners that are still working on developing their own ‘green thumb’.  Flower gardens established in the year 2020, or later are eligible.  Artificial flowers are not acceptable.

Judging will commence after July 23, 2024.

Entry deadline – June 30, 2024

• Overall appearance and curb appeal   300 points
