Groups and individuals across the district are invited to create their own mini-garden for display at this year’s Harrogate Spring Flower Show.

Organisers of the April event are staging a Pocket Gardens display for the first time, and want groups to create 1m x 1m plots, following any theme and style - as long as they are a garden.

Harrogate Flower Shows Director Nick Smith said: “We hope that our Pocket Gardens will give a wide range of community groups a new opportunity to reach thousands of people during the show.

“The competition could also lead to bigger things for some groups, who might like to go on to build full-sized gardens in the future.

“Both our spring and autumn events feature community show gardens, which are highly successful at raising the profile of the teams taking part and very popular with our visitors.”

There will be prizes for the top three gardens.

The Pocket Gardens competition is open to any community-based organisation, including schools, gardening groups, societies and charities.

Each team will be provided with a 1m x 1m wooden frame, plus compost for planting up.

The closing date for entries in Friday, February 28. Contact Ben Wray at info@flowershow.org.uk
