Garden competition winners soon

THE wait is almost over for all the hopeful gardeners who entered our Top Garden Competition.

Judging is now underway and the results will be published in next week’s paper.

Meanwhile, the closing date for Central Scotland Forest Trusts’s (CSFT) Best Garden Competition is approaching fast.

The charity is urging aspiring horticulturists to plant wildflowers and to cultivate fruit and vegetables to encourage biodiversity.

It is open to individuals, community groups and schools - send photographs with a description of the plants and the nature they attract.

The deadline is September 30 and the top prize is £100 of Dobbies vouchers. E-mail entries to competition@csft.org.uk
