With a record-breaking number of Beautiful Borders in 2019, this unique garden design competition continues to grow in stature and prominence. A springboard into garden design and Show Garden design, it is an unparalleled opportunity to show off skills, create a unique portfolio piece, rise to a new challenge and meet potential new clients.
The 2020 theme is Flower Power - unleashing opportunities for boundless colour, flamboyance and inspiration.
Will you take part in 2020? Creating a border of just a few meters squared, the Beautiful Border competition is ideal for emerging gardeners and designers, horticulture students and gardening groups. It's an exceptional way to experience the design, planning and build of a horticultural exhibit in a show environment, without the large financial and resource commitment of a show garden.
