Do you have Kents best garden?

Kent Life, in association with Hadlow College, is launching a new competition to find the best amateur garden and best primary school garden in Kent. There are great prizes to be won and the winning gardens will be featured in Kent Life.

Kent Life Garden of the Year

We are interested in hearing from passionate amateur home gardeners,
so whether your garden is large or small, this is a chance to show our
judging panel and readers that you have the best garden in Kent. Open
to private home gardeners only.


Best Primary School Garden

Is your primary school proud of its garden, is it run on ecological lines
and are the children involved in its design? Have you made the best
possible educational use of your primary school garden? If so, we want to see the results of your gardening endeavours.


Judging criteria

In both categories, the judging panel will be looking at: the overall
design, layout, planting selection, maintenance, special features such
as sustainability, wildlife, family areas and water features


Rules of voting

Closing date for entries:
18 June 2010.
Finalists will be selected and visited
by the judging panel by 2 July.
All finalists' gardens will be photographed by Kent Life by 2 July.
Kent Life regrets that photographs and sketches cannot be returned,
by submitting your photos and sketches you are agreeing to their use in Kent Life and its associated website and publications.


Your entry

Send in, by post or email or enter online (next column) up to six
high-resolution colour photos of your garden or your primary school
garden to give a general impression of the garden, views from different
angles, before and after pictures if available, and include some favourite
places in the garden. Send also a brief description of your garden, its
challenges, special features, location and size and what it means to you.
