Annual Garden Competition
Prune those hedges! Tweak those roses! The Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s Annual Garden Competition takes place in the months of July and August, weather dependent. Community residents enter into the garden competition and a town representative along with members of the competition’s sponsor, Murrays Garden Center, tour the resident’s gardens and judge on different categories. Categories include Best Landscape Design; Best Fruit/Vegetable Garden; People’s Choice Award; and Best Small Space or Container Garden. First prize in each category has included prizes in the past such at a $100 gift certificate for Murray’s Garden Centre. Check back for upcoming dates for the 2017 competition and if you have any questions, feel free to call the office.
