Last year’s Garden Competition was a blooming success but, supported once again by the knowledgeable team at The Plant Market and Resident VOICES Chair John Bell, we are on a mission to make this year’s even bigger and better!
Tenants are invited to enter a variety of categories to suit all styles of gardens; whether you have your own private garden, help to maintain a communal garden or simply have a small display of potted plants or hanging baskets on your veranda. This year we are also introducing a Best Children’s Display category, so under-16s can take part too.
Getting the kids involved will keep them happily occupied in the fresh air, spark their creativity and teach them about where flowers and food come from. Plus, you get to spend lots of time pottering together in the garden.
If you’re looking for some tips on how to get them interested then you’ll find some great ideas on the BBC website.
There’s lots of other fantastic gardening advice available online and you can also follow us on Facebook for helpful, handy hints.
The closing date for entries is 30 June with judging scheduled for mid-July so register your interest NOW!
