With the lighter evenings and warmer weather comes anticipation and enthusiasm for our gardens and allotments. You are all invited to enter our annual competition. You do not need to be an expert gardener to enter or even need a big garden, as it is all about how well you use the space that you have. It is an opportunity to be rewarded for your creative skills and passion for gardening. Gardens, allotments and vegetable plots in gardens of any size can be entered. There will be prizes for the best small, medium and large gardens, the best allotment, best garden vegetable plot and best hanging baskets and container. Prizes will be awarded at the Emsworth Show . There is only a nominal fee to enter and more details including judging criteria and entry forms are available on the EHS website and at the hut. Entry forms will also be available at the evening talks, the open garden mornings or by email from me. The summer garden competition now has three categories small, medium and large, and you can enter either your front or rear garden. The hanging basket competition has separate categories for small baskets, large baskets and containers. You can also enter a vegetable/fruit plot within your garden and, of course, an allotment. 1 . Allotments – judging usually takes place during the first week of July. 2 . Hanging baskets and containers – judging takes place mid-July. 3 . Gardens and vegetable plots – judging takes place mid-July. Please note that the closing date for all entries will be 28 th June 2019. I look forward to receiving your entries. Do contact me via if you have any questions or require an entry form. Karen Beale
