Annual Garden Competition 2016


The Competition this year attracted a variety of entries with an increased entry in the Large Garden Section.

The judging of the gardens,was this year, undertaken by Sam and Kay McDowell from Limavady. Sam and Kay are experienced gardeners with an interest in Alpines. They travel widely in Europe exploring flora in their natural environment. They were clearly impressed with the overall standard of entries including those with difficult terrains. The competition marks were extremely close with only 2/3 marks seperating the winners and places.

A Power Point Presentation, of all the garden entries, will be shown at the Prize Presentation evening on Tues 27th September at 7.30pm in the Silverbirch Hotel.
