2006 Garden Competition


The 2006 Hills District and Bunya Garden Competition Committee is chaired by Sue Coutts (pictured above).  New and recycled committee members are always welcome - please email gardencomp@fhpa.com.au if you are able to assist in any way.

The weather conditions and water restrictions will present even more of a challenge this year, but it's now more important than ever to show that it's still possible to have an attractive garden under adverse conditions by adopting waterwise strategies.

The waterwise category is sponsored by the Pine Rivers Shire Council and will be expanded this year to cover waterwise planting, as well as innovations in water collection and retention.  We've also identified some useful waterwise links:

Pine Water

Waterwise Gardens

Water Corporation

Plants International

The key dates are:

Closing date for entries - Tuesday, 5th September

Judging Day - Sunday, 10th September

Presentation Day - Sunday, 8th October

Presentations this year will be held at the Arana Leagues Club.

All entrants will receive vouchers for a free bag of potting mix from our major sponsor, Steve Jones, and a cubic metre of mulch from the Pine Rivers Shire Council.  Please note that you will need to pick up the mulch yourself from the Council tip on Bunya Rd.  The mulch is not bagged and you will need a box trailer or utility to collect it.

The Hills District and Bunya Garden Competition wish to recognise the generosity and support of our sponsors.  Residents can show their appreciation by supporting these sponsors.

The sponsors list was last updated 10th September, 2006.
