The 2021 competition is now closed (the deadline for entries was Sunday, 4 July). Winners will be announced in September.
With social distancing restrictions in place submissions for the gardening competition were online again this year. All residents – including expert gardeners and new budding enthusiasts - were encouraged to take part by sprucing up gardens, creating a colourful window display, or by growing gorgeous house plants.
Entries will be judged remotely - entrants sent photographs of their green-fingered accomplishments to the judges by emailing email@example.com.
Gardening is known to have a positive impact on mental health and this year’s competition offered a great opportunity for residents to benefit at such a challenging time.
This year’s categories are:
Best Back Garden
Best Front Garden
Best Container Garden
Best Children’s Planting – (14 years and under)
Best Window Box
Best House Plant
Best Edible Garden – new category
Best Community Garden
Best Tree Pit
