Spring Garden Competition 2021

Council invites the local community and organisations to showcase their gardening skills and enter the annual Spring Garden Competition 2021.


Whether you are an amateur green thumb or more experienced gardener, City of Parramatta Council invites you to enter the Online Spring Garden Competition 2021.

With the warmer weather, spring is the perfect time for flowers to blossom, plants to flourish and fruit and veggies to grow.  

There are eight different categories available for you to compete in, with winners being rewarded $400 for their individual entry and $500 for an organisation entry.

The Spring Garden Competition will run online due to COVID-19 restrictions and is free to enter.

Entries open on the 5 October and close 30 November.

Please complete the entry form below by telling us a bit about yourself and your garden.
