If you haven’t already, there is just enough time to enter your garden for the 2012 Somerset and Dorset Wildlife Friendly Gardening Competition that The Gardens Group is proud to be sponsoring. The closing date for entries is 18th May 2012 and judging of the short-listed gardens will take place in June.

Whether your garden is small, medium sized, large with a meadow or orchard or shared in the community, there is a category for you. The Dorset and Somerset Wildlife Trusts will judge your garden on how wildlife friendly it is and the winners will be presented with a plaque at an Awards Ceremony at Castle Garden in Sherborne on Thursday 19th July 2012. The runners up will also receive prizes and what’s more we will be rewarding every school that enters this competition.

So what are you waiting for? If your garden is a wildlife haven you can enter the competition by visiting DWTonline or SWTonline, visit Castle or Brimsmore Gardens to collect an entry form or download here.
