It is open to all residents in the Sudbury district, including Ballingdon, Great Cornard and Little Cornard.
One of the categories is best Wildlife & Eco Friendly Garden. Our video gives lots of tips and advice for achieving this. If your garden ticks a lot of the boxes then get your entry in to us!
In late May or early June chop off the top third or top half of the plants. Ideally cut immediately above leaf shoots, as plants will regrow better from these points.
Come flowering times you will have shorter, stockier, stronger plants that shouldn't need staking - and are therefore lower maintenance!
