What bloomin’ lovely colours now that this year’s ‘Tower Hamlets In Bloom’ competition has opened in east London.
The annual gardening contest where green fingers compete for the best managed and perhaps most colourful open space is back to give seasoned and novice gardeners the chance to show off their horticultural skills and help make the East End bright and beautiful.
These include baskets hanging from balconies, or floral planters outside schools, community groups and homes.
Categories include ‘Gardener of the Year’, best allotment, best community growing site, best children’s garden and best newcomer.
Deadline for entries is June 30, with judging in July and August and awards at the year made at Mile End’s Art Pavilion.
Entry forms can be downloaded online. But entries must be visible or accessible to the passing public—except for categories such as allotments, wildlife-friendly gardens and schools or colleges.
