Garden enthusiasts are encouraged to apply for this year’s Ellon Garden Competition.

Six categories are up for grabs including prizes for the best and runner up front gardens across Ellon as well as the top Senior Citizens garden, Hanging Baskets and Tubs, the best Hidden Gardens, Vegetable Garden/Plot, Community Garden and best new garden. An award will also be presented to the best overall garden in the town. Organiser Aileen Taylor said: “Initial indications suggest that last year’s very high standards have been maintained and we will be re-introducing an award for the best new garden for houses built in the last 12 months.” To apply or nominate someone call 01358 720882 or email Ellon.community.council@gmail.com. Nominations are open until Monday, August 1.
