Judges want to see what gardening skills residents, organisations, businesses and schools within the Parish of Aylesbury have to offer this summer.

The Town Council has hosted this event every year since 2007 but after taking a break in 2020 due to the pandemic it’s back and the judges are looking forward to visiting entrants’ gardens, schools and local businesses and organisations in July and August.

The competition is once again supported by Michael Anthony Estate Agents, for which the Council are very grateful.
