The City Council's launched its summer competition - with other contests to find the area's best allotment and scarecrow too.

Private gardens, community groups, schools and pubs are all welcome to enter their gardens into the competition.

The prizes are judged on criteria like the range of plants, good environmental practice and things like problem solving to get the garden well-established.

Gardens stand a chance of taking a gold, silver or bronze medal for their efforts.

There are also some competitions being run by Salisbury City Council to discover the top allotments and scarecrows locally as well.

Photos of any colourful characters in our gardens, balconies or even indoors can be sent in for judging.

They can be made by families, individuals, groups or organisations, as well as school and holiday club activities.

Where are Salisbury's best scarecrows?

The city's best allotments are also being sought for their popular annual competition.

The prizes for that are based on things like tidiness, range of produce grown and environmental efforts.


If you want to get your green-fingered activities into the running for the contests, you can find an entry form on the Salisbury City Council website. 

There's also more information available by emailing or call the Parks Department on 01722 342860.

The deadline for entries is Friday June 7th, with judging taking place in mid-July.

All the winners will be announced at a special ceremony at Salisbury Guildhall in September.
