Annual competition for gardeners with the greenest fingers

Green fingered gardeners across East Ayrshire are invited to enter the Council’s annual garden competition which is now in its 79th year.

The competition is open to anyone living in East Ayrshire with a garden, no matter how big or small, which is maintained by themselves and not a professional gardener. There are prizes and trophies up for grabs.

The competition is judged across four housing areas:

• Cumnock and Doon Valley
• Irvine Valley and Ballochmyle
• Kilmarnock Central and South
• North West Kilmarnock

Competition categories

A winner and runner up are selected in each of the following categories:

• Best Council garden
• Best private garden
• Best planters or hanging baskets
• Best vegetable garden
• Best newcomer
• Special achievement award
• Overall winner

And this year there are two exciting new categories:

• Clean, Green, Vibrant Street
• Clean, Green, Vibrant Town/Village

You can now nominate a street, a town or a village that has improved significantly and become a more vibrant place to live and visit.

Full details and information on how to enter are available
