With the recent sunshine and warmer temperatures, gardens have burst into life; time to remind you about the Marchmont and Sciennes Community Council Tenement Front Gardens and Containers Competition!
Any garden and/or container clearly visible from the pavement will be considered. The walkabout judging will take place in late June and early July, and there is no need to enter the competition: as long as your garden or container can be seen, it will be eligible for consideration for an award.
The categories are:
- Front gardens (East, South, West-facing)
- North-facing front gardens
- Hanging baskets, window boxes, and containers
- Wildlife-friendly gardens
- New/improved gardens
- Other commended gardens
There will be awards in each category and an overall winner who will be awarded the Smalley Quaich. All of the award winners will be presented with their certificates and a small prize at the Church of the German-speaking Congregation in Chalmers Crescent on Saturday 1st October at 4pm. All welcome - we hope to see you there!
