Lockyer Valley set to go green

LOCKYER Valley green thumbs should start sewing the seeds for success soon, with the region's annual gardening competition coming up in September.

Entries are open and will be judged at the upcoming Laidley Spring Festival.

Mayor Tanya Milligan encouraged those who had a passion for gardening to enter.

"So many properties in the Lockyer Valley have gardens that clearly take their owners a considerable amount of effort and their results are truly stunning," Cr Milligan said.

Cr Milligan said council was thrilled to welcome back renowned gardening expert and judge Rod Hultgren.

Entry forms are available at council's offices in Gatton and Laidley, or download from the website.
