Published: 6 Aug 2012 09:300 comments

PROVOST Tina Murphy is gearing up for a blooming lovely day as she heads the judging panel in Clackmannanshire's annual garden competition.

The closing date for entries to the 2012 garden competition was Saturday 30 June and inspection of gardens in the Wee County has been carried out throughout July, leading up to the big day.

Judging will take place on Wednesday with the judging panel leaving Kilncraigs Council Offices to begin what promises to be an exciting but difficult adjudication process.

Every year the standard of entries to the competition is always extremely high and it is fully expected it will be no different this year, despite the weather.

This year there will be gardens judged in the following categories: Floral; Allotment; Floral Containers; Commercial Premises; Vegetable Garden; Newcomer; Biodiversity; and Council Tenant.

There will also be special awards for the best floral gardens in the following areas: Alloa; Alva; Coalsnaughton; Devonside, and Fishcross; Clackmannan, Kennet, and Forestmill; Dollar and Muckhart; Menstrie; Sauchie; Tillicoultry; Tullibody; Cambus and Glenochil.

All categories are judged on the general appearance and layout of the garden utilisation of plant material within the garden along with the standard of cultivation and maintenance of the garden.
