Belvoir Castle Countryside Borders Competition 2023

We are celebrating our involvement in the fifth year of The Belvoir Castle Flower and Garden Show which runs from 15th-16th July 2023 by asking you to show us your perfect countryside border.
We are looking for creative ideas and invite anyone involved in garden design, horticulture and landscaping to enter the ‘Countryside Borders Competition’.

The planting design competition has proved to be a great place for new designers to start their show careers, to experience what it feels like to put on an exhibit and to meet the garden enthusiast market. Past exhibitors have gone on to make successful applications for other national garden shows and win! It’s an ideal place to launch a garden design career giving you promotional material to get your services noticed.

For 2023, exhibitors have a new option to design for one of two possible shapes. In total there will be 20 bursaries available for the competition spaces. Successful applicants will get the chance to build and showcase their ‘Countryside Border’. Successful entries will receive a grant of £200 towards their plants. The rest is up to you!
