HAMPSHIRE FEDERATION OF HORTICULTURAL SOCIETIES PETER MAUNDER GARDEN COMPETITION
The Peter Maunder Garden Competition is held annually in July. Anyone who is a member of an affiliated society is eligible to enter the competition. You do not need acres of rolling park land; there is one class in the competition for all garden sizes. The judging is based upon the suitability of the design to the site, the level of maintenance, the suitability and cultivation of the plants and the practicality of planting. It is accepted that many gardens have more than one purpose. Vegetable gardens are often incorporated into decorative gardens and there is the need for seating areas and play space for children.
The competition is judged by Federation approved judges and there are prizes and certificates for First, Second and Third. The First prize winner also gets custody of the Peter Maunder Trophy for one year. This is a memorial to one of the founding members of the Federation and it is a delightful miniature pewter wheelbarrow on a wooden stand, therefore no polishing required.
Do consider entering your garden. Entry forms and the judging criteria are available on this website.
