Wartook Gardens Awards

When the Horsham Spring Garden Festival began some years ago, a garden competition was established to both encourage gardeners and to educate the public into developing different types of gardens, especially what can be achieved using little water.

Although Wartook Gardens has been recognized among Australian Plant growers for many years, and has been visited by many Australian Plant and other garden groups, it has also been visited by some international tour groups and botanists.

As 2002 was a very dry year, we were encouraged to enter the Horsham Spring Garden Festival Garden Competition and have entered each year since.

We have been successful in receiving the following awards:

  • "Best Country Garden 2002" and "Champion Garden 2002"
  • "Best Mostly Australian Plants Garden 2003"
  • "Best Mostly Australian Plants Garden 2004"
  • "Best Mostly Australian Plants Garden 2005"
  • **NEW** "Best Mostly Australian Plants Garden 2006"
