Rocky Point Verge Garden Competition
The Rocky Point Verge Garden Competition is for exhibitors to create a temporary verge garden along the pathways within the Old Museum Gardens to further beautify the venue for the period of the Royal Queensland Show.
Verge gardening is the practice of growing ornamental, native or edible plants on a footpath, with the style of garden increasing in popularity in urban areas.
This year green thumbs will compete to take home the Colin Campbell Memorial Award for the Most Educational Display, and the NGIQ Award for the Most Stunning Verge Garden.
Budding gardeners will create their own verge garden inside a 1.5m wide x 3m long planter box, (provided by the RNA) and contain a myriad of plant materials including herbs, flowers and shrubs. The gardens will provide a vibrant link between the Old Museum and the rest of the Showgrounds.
