During online entry, you will be asked:

  • nominate a judging time: 1 hour timeslot, 8.30am - 3.30pm, weekdays 11-22 September
  • which category you are entering (listed below).

Entries close Friday 4 September, 5pm

Gardeners that enter the competition are then invited to our gala presentation on 10 October held at the North Sydney Oval function centre where it is hosted by a local celebrity (for instance Costa Georgiadis).

Entry is free and open to all residents in the North Sydney local government area.

You are welcome to enter more than one category and at the judges discretion your garden may automatically be judged in categories other than the one entered.
