It’s once again time for West Lothian’s gardeners to ‘‘spring into action’ to prepare for West Lothian Council’s annual gardens competition.
The closing date for entries has been set for Friday, July 17. Entry is free and there are lots of prizes to be won.
Competition judging starts during the week beginning Monday, July 27, and the awards ceremony will be held on Friday, November 13.
The competition aims to encourage local residents to get involved in gardening, which is a healthy, fun activity that enhances and enriches not just your own property but the wider West Lothian community.
Residents in West Lothian can nominate their gardens for the following categories: General garden, containers/hanging baskets, vegetable garden, wildlife garden, best newcomer; best community garden and tallest sunflower.
Gardens are assessed and graded on a points-based system with awards given out in gold, silver and bronze categories.
