Garden Competition Poster

Following the success of last year’s tenants’ gardening competition, we’re on our marks to make sure this year’s event is even bigger and better.

Garden 2Supported once again by the expert team at The Plant Market, with assistance from our very own Resident VOICES Chair, John Bell, 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, hanging baskets or a fairy garden on your veranda, we want you to get involved!

Garden 3The kids can join in too with the return of our popular ‘Best Children’s Display’ category. Getting them into gardening can help to spark their creativity and will teach them about where flowers and food come from. Plus, you get to spend lots of time with together, enjoying yourselves outside in the fresh air.

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 as well and you can also follow our Facebook page for handy hints and tips.
