Won last year by Mrs Lynda Christison for her garden at Rowantree Road, Mayfield (pictured left), the competition celebrates Melville’s finest gardens and has a £100 first prize with two runners-receiving £35 each. Gardeners should enter as soon as possible so that we have the opportunity to photograph gardens at their most vibrant best.

You can download an entry form, or find out more by getting in touch with Dan Hughes by sending an email to, phoning 0131 561 6466 or by popping in to our office at the Dalkeith Corn Exchange.

Completed entry forms for the Baxter Keiller Prize, named after a keen Melville gardener who sadly passed away in 2014, must be returned to us no later than 5pm on Friday 20 July 2018. Judging will take place in August and winners will be announced at our Annual General Meeting in September.
