GREEN-fingered residents have until Saturday (30 June) to enter Clackmannanshire Council's annual garden competition.
The competition is open to everyone including council tenants, private home owners, local businesses and allotment owners.
It doesn't matter how big or small the garden is - if there is no garden judges will look at window boxes or floral tubs.
The lucky winners will receive a range of vouchers to spend in garden centres.
There are trophies and awards for the following: Floral; Allotment; Floral Containers; Commercial Premises; Vegetable Garden; Newcomer; Biodiversity; Council Tenant as well as certificates for outstanding achievement.
Preliminary judging will be carried out in July before a short-list is drawn up and final judging takes place early August.
Provost Tina Murphy said, "This is an ideal opportunity for the people of Clackmannanshire to show off their gardening skills and show how fantastic the area looks."
Entry forms are available from all council offices, libraries and also available to download on ClacksWeb, www.clacksweb.org.uk/community/gardencompetition/
