A walk in Spanish garden on north coast

By Linda Stewart

This is the stunning Moorish-themed garden that graces the unlikely location of Portstewart – and is one of the entries in our big gardening competition.

James Logan designed and created this beautiful garden following a series of visits to the Alhambra in Granada.

Whether you've got a balcony or a landed estate, the Belfast Telegraph wants to find the gardeners whose passion and skill have resulted in the most inspirational gardens in Northern Ireland.

The closing date isn't until July 4, which means you still have a few weeks to get your garden looking great.

We are offering an incredible £1,000 worth of gardening products in each of our four categories, so it's time to get mulching.

You can enter in one of four categories – Small Urban (which includes balconies and courtyards); Urban Garden; Small Country Garden, and Large Country Garden (over half-an-acre).

All you have to do is photograph a few views of your garden, add your name and contact details.

You can also include a brief outline of a few paragraphs describing your garden, but this isn't compulsory.

Then just email your entry to or post them to Linda Stewart at Belfast Telegraph, 124-144 Royal Avenue, Belfast BT1 1EB. Winners will also feature in our Blooming Marvellous supplement.
