Gardening tips on how to shine in this years' Cornwall in Bloom competition are on offer at a free event.

Community groups and budding gardeners are invited to find out more about the annual competition at a free event in Liskeard on Saturday.

Green fingered experts will be on hand at Morley Tamblyn Lodge (10am-3pm) to advise on planting and grant funding. The day includes a tour of the gardens and free lunch.

Tracy Wilson, competition judge said: "The opportunity for people from right across Cornwall, involved in such a hugely diverse range of projects, to get together is so valuable.

"Not only will there be a lot of very useful information available, but the chance to swap experiences is almost equally important."

Cornwall in Bloom is run by Cornwall Council and Truro City Council.

A range of projects have been set up since the competition started in 2009, including woodland groups and allotment societies.

This year the event will include a schools' competition to encourage youngsters to grow as many potatoes as they can from a single seed potato.

Judging for the competition is in July and August.
