The Rotary Club of Eynesbury, with the ongoing support of Resimax, is proud to present the 2021 Eynesbury Garden Competition

Enter your garden now for your chance to win an amazing prize and be crowned one of the best gardens in Eynesbury!


All registered gardens will be visited by our panel of judges on Saturday 16 October for the first round of judging. Our amazing panel of judges include:

Steve Wilcox – Eynesbury Lawn Care

Elizabeth Attard – Bunnings Horticulturist

Johnny Alagappan – Local Eynesbury resident and garden enthusiast

Sharon Vis – Horticulturist from Friends of the Melton Botanic Garden

The top three gardens in each category will be visited by our Celebrity Judge Vasili on Sunday 24 October. Vasili kindly offered to judge our first garden competition last year and was very excited to come back again! Vasili is a garden expert who not only sells his own garden products and runs a nursery, but also hosts the Australian television gardening program Vasili’s Garden. Each episode of the show, which is unscripted, focuses on the plants and produce from home gardens in Melbourne and surrounding areas, with emphasis on traditional and organic methods of gardening and healthy eating. Check out his website here:


  • Native/Water Conservation Garden
  • Cottage Garden
  • Designed/Architecture Garden
  • General Garden

We are ever grateful to our fabulous sponsors. Without their support we would not be able to run this amazing community event.
