So the BIG QUESTION is – which Harfield Gardener is going to win the weekend for 2 at five star Craigrownie Guest House, R1000 Harts Nursery Voucher, a dinner for two at one of our awesome Harfield Restaurants and the Garden of the Year Floating Trophy???

If you don’t enter it will not be you – so go for it, if not the winning pot then ……….., don’t despair there are great prizes for each category and some fun spot prizes to boot. Not to mention the fun to be had by swopping ideas, tips and plants in the next 3 months while you get your garden into shape.

This will not be a Garden competition looking for rolling green lawns with perfect edges. This is a Harfield Garden, we are celebrating your gardening passion not your gardening perfection. It is about community, sharing and the joy of special spaces. Great to have the HVA Chairman, James Fernie be the first to enter and two categories nogal, patio and pavement.

There are five categories to give everyone a chance to strut their stuff.
Traditional Garden – or anything but – we love a bit of the bizarre
Pavement Garden – hoping to inspire more gems around, but please keep walking space
Patio Garden – this can be your tiny flat verandah or you inside out living space
Complex Garden – we love the creative stuff being done with these communal spaces
Vegetable Garden – seen a few popping up around Harfield so loving this one

Entering is easy – fill out and submit a form with your entry fee of R50 (per category) and email the form to or drop it at Norgarb Properties or Oggi.

Next, sit down on your patio with a glass of vino and contemplate your garden and what you think needs to be done to make it more useable for you.

Draw up a list of tasks and set about ticking them off so that you finish by voting time – mid September.

We will contact you to arrange a time for the judges to visit during the last part of September when most of your spring flowers should be starting to bloom. On D-day – 4 October will ask the finalists to open their gardens to the Harfielders who would like to do The Garden Tour en route to the prize giving and not to be missed high tea in Purley Park sponsored by Norgarb Properties.

We would like to thank the sponsors for their great contributions of enthusiasm and prizes
