Entries are again being taken for the annual Beautiful Angus Garden Competition as Angus Council celebrates the efforts of the county’s gardeners.

The 2016 event was launched at the Reid Hall, Forfar, recently and is the latest instalment of the Beautiful Angus event.

Angus Council have recognised the proud efforts of the tenants in their gardens for more than 60 years.

The council’s website states: “Standards have always been very high, with entries from council house tenants across Angus and, more recently, from our primary schools, nurseries and licensed premises.

“It is an excellent way of paying tribute to the hard work and passion that we know goes into these wonderful gardens and open spaces.”

The competition is open to people of all ages and abilities and all sizes of gardens - anything from planters upwards will be considered.

The website continues: “Photographs are not required when you enter this year and feel free to contact us if you would like any tips or advice.”

Judging will be carried out by Angus Council Parks Services Officers and Community Judges during July and feedback will be made available to all entrants afterwards.

Tenants and licensed premises will be judged using according to cleanliness, use of colour, integration of plants, use of space, innovation and sustainability. Prizes will be presented at an awards ceremony in late September. Go to the dedicated Beautiful Angus page on the Angus Council website to enter, or for more information.
