Seed Growing Competition

It’s that time of the year! Time to get the kids planting as part of the Eden Gardens and Ryde Council seed growing competition.

Created as part of the 2020 Spring Garden competition, the kids seed growing competition is to see who can grow the best Cosmos Carpet formula from seed - kindly donated by Mr.Fothergills.

The aim is to see who can grow the best Cosmos Carpet Formula from seed. Age brackets for entries will be:

  • 3 – 7 years of age
  • 8 – 12 years of age

Once you have entered the competition, you can collect your free seed growing kit (Cosmos seeds, 1 x pot, growing instructions and 2 entry tags – limit of one kit per child) from Eden Gardens during 1 August – 20 September 2020. Eden Gardens is located at 307 Lane Cove Rd, Macquarie Park.

We encourage entries in the Children’s Seed Growing category to be made before 31 August to allow for maximum seed growing time. The competition's seed planting date starts from Sunday 16 August 2020.

Late entry, collection of seeds and late planting will be permitted up until 20 September, however, this will reduce the seed and plant growing time.
