The judging criteria was unchanged from previous years and the weather was kind, if not a little too hot for comfort.

71 gardens were awarded prizes, with fewer than normal in the Most Colourful Flower Garden category.  Judges commented that cold weather late in the year meant that plants weren’t as far on as usual on the day of the competition.
